    Saroco Chillin' With My Peeps

    One of my new chicks is limping. She does not put any weight on her leg... She was fine yesterday. What happened? [​IMG] Do you think that the other chicks were pecking at her toes to much or something? Is it normal for chicks to do things like that?

    Not unusual for a minor injury to occur. If you have looked carefully and don't see any injury, it will likely resolve on its own. Might help to isolate it for a day or two, to rest it. This might work best if you put one other chick with it.
