    Pictures.

    When you do a post, look at all the little icons above your text. See the Smiley face? To it's left, is a thing that looks like mountains. Put your mouse pointer on that and a hint box will appear that says "Insert Image". Click that and an "Embed an Image" dialog will pop up. Follow the instructions and you can insert an image where ever the blinking cursor is.

    Note that the image has to be saved somewhere on your computer and uploaded before it will be inserted.

    I know what you mean! I panicked when my ducks were babies. They out ate all of my five chicks put together! Now they hit the feed bowl maybe once in the morning and spend the rest of the day foraging. And they are my most reliable layers. Well, besides my comet.

    Lol John! That looks like my house with 5 dogs.

    I went and bought Poly-vi-sol and gave the chick with the bad legs a drop. I saw more egg shells laying around and saw we have another wyandotte and an extra set of shells. I felt around and found a dead blue silkie. So I had two blue silkies. She stepped on one I think because it was under her foot when I found it. The other blue is the one I gave the vitamins. I hope her legs are just weak, and not messed up from being stepped on. The little white silkie is doing great. I have learned however, that maybe putting silkie eggs under large fowl hen is a mistake. I won't do that again. So in total I have 2 wyandottes, a minorca cross, one white healthy silkie, and 2 blues, one deceased and one struggling. I am waiting on the australorp egg and two more silkies to hatch. I also have my silkie hen on her 15 eggs in the silkie coop, so I won't be short on silkies, but is is disheartening to lose them. The little ones that are healthy are very strong. So that is something.

    Vitamin E Deficiency: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...y-and-crazy-chick-disease-photos-added-post-5

    This is what I was thinking of! Try to find some Vitamin E to give the little one and see if it helps. I'm also seeing where Selenium is necessary to absorb vitamin E, so you might want to look into that.

    Also, wry neck--the treatment is similar, and this treatment was used with success in a wry neck chick: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...ze-updated-with-great-results/10#post_4698410


    And finally, I didn't think of it before, but make sure your Poly-Vi-Sol is the kind without iron, as the iron is bad on the little birdies.
