    help! My 4 week old bantam cochin chick has suddenly become unable to walk properly. Its legs are splayed out and behind it. Its eating and drinking fine. I gave it a little poly visol via dropper but its not helped.

    Maybe try making a new thread in “emergencies/diseases/injuries” forum and title it “splay leg help”... something like that... there is lots of info and help for that... hope your little one gets better!
