    I have a partridge Cochin chick that was 2 weeks old on Monday that started limping yesterday, it is in the brooder with my 14 other chicks (barred and buff rocks) and this one has seemed to have grown slightly slower and had less energy than the rest since day one.

    I tried to inspect its legs and feet but can't find anything wrong that I can see, it does not like being held and when I tried to separate it from the rest (in a clear plastic tote where it could still see the other chicks) it acted stressed so I just put it back in with them.

    I'm afraid the other chicks may have landed on it while fluttering around as they tend to be much more active, is there anything else I can do to try and help it or anything else I should look for to see where the problem might be? All other chicks appear healthy and fine
    Thanks-TJ
