    I am new, and I joined to ask about one of my chicks.
    She is limping:(. I have examined her several times and found nothing. Does anyone have any ideas? The chick is about six weeks old.

    Thanks,
    M.N.

    I'm pretty sure it isn't broken, but I took photos of the legs if I can only figure out how to post them!

    well, her right leg is extremely swollen so either she sprained it and it will heal or its broken and there's nothing you can do. does she get herself to food and water?
