    Hi all,

    I have a recently hatched chick that seems to be lame in one leg. His toes are curled up, and he seems to try to keep his weight off of that foot. I have him isolated in a section of the brooder so that the other chicks wouldn't run over him. I was wondering if there is anything we can do to help him get better.
