    My New Hampshire Red arrived with a hurt left leg. She's eating and drinking. Should I call My Pet Chicken?

    She holds it up while she's standing. She also limps while she walks it would be hard to get a picture of it...should i call My Pet Chicken?

    How many chicks did you get from them?

    I don't think MPC intentionally pit a chick in there with a hurt leg, it may have had a bit of a rough journey. You may want to give em a ring and see what they have to say though.. I would give it a day and see how the leg is, hopefully it is just a bruise or strain. poor little girl =/

    She's up with the other chicks eating egg right now.

    I am glad that i got 10 though, they are adorable.

    Looks like all we got on the forums today is newbies like me =/

    I will try to bump this up for you so some more seasoned posters can help.
    Can you give us a picture of her? that may help, if its splayed leg or whatever. or maybe you could try to see if there are any visible marks or wounds?
