    so, one of my new chicks cam in the mail with one leg sticking out to the side in an unnatural way. I think it might be broken...what should i do? She is eating and drinking fine, and is stumbling/walking around, and looks ok except for the leg. should i try to set it or leave it? She is abut 2-3 days old and lives with 9 other chicks in a brooder.

    thanks...that could be it, cause she is walking and moving...it actually looks a lot better today than yesterday. When i had a duckling with a broken leg, she couldn't walk at all. We had to kill her, very sad :(
    I will look into those supplements, thanks :)
