    Hi all so one of my new girls started limping about five days after we got her. She is two months old and from a farm. She has a little friend and they run, jump at eachother so we thought she landed funny. My boyfriend checked her leg and cant see any obvious swelling or fractures. So we put her on crate rest. We are now on the third day and to me she seems a lot worse. She cant balance and is falling over. She is still eating.
     
  2. Hi, I am experiencing this at the moment, though my chick has much improved today and ran around the yard before wearing herself out again. See my post regarding chick falling back on haunches
