    i have a 6 wk old jersey giant chick that i found unable to walk last friday.
    she has no disease symptoms. she has the ability to grip my fingers, can push herself with her legs, flap her wings and seems as happy as can be.

    eats great and poops mountains.

    any idea as to what might be the problem? if it is an injury, i am hoping nerves will heal. she was with 4 others of the same batch... same age and size.

    if you have encountered this, or know someone who has, please let me know.
