    I have a week old silkie who hurt her one leg and won't walk. I've made sure she has easy access to food and water. What can I do to help her

    Do you know how she injured her leg?
    Any photos?

    Watch to see that she is drinking and eating well. If she is with other chicks and you see that she is struggling to get around or if she is being overrun by the others you may need to separate her - you can place a barrier in the brooder so she can see the others.

    Provide her with poultry vitamins that contains Vitamin B2(riboflavin)

    Here's some information - hopefully you will see something that may help:

    Shes eating and drinking. She goes on her haunches and kinda tries to walk which is a slight improvement for before.
