    Hi, so I just got my chicks and I noticed that one of them is limping. IT's not all the time limping it's sort of on and off. IS this a sign of splayed legs? The legs look straight but occasionally I see her limping for no reason. Then after a bit she can walk normal. There a week old if that helps.
    Please help!

    Doesn't sound like splayed leg at all. With splayed leg they will hardly be able to stand at ALL constantly.
