I have a small handful of week old Australorp chicks, though one of the four seems to have a problem with
moving about. The chick can stand and walk, just not as often or as effortlessly as the other three. I've done some research but I am unwilling to determine what condition the chick has and treat it accordingly based on my interpretation of photos on-line. I was hoping some of you wonderful and more experienced people may provide an opinion on what may be affecting this little one and recommended procedures for helping. Let me know if more photos/information will be helpful.
Thank you in advance.

Oh how nice looking of a chick .....

Sounds like your chick needs some protein and a great natural
fix for this is a hard boiled egg just remove the shell and mash
the egg up and serve now do this twice a day for three days
and see if this makes a difference ........



And
great to have you joining the BYC flock
