Hello Everyone, I'm just after some advice for my new chickens. I've hatched only two batches of chicks, one about 8 weeks ago and another as of today. My first hatch gave me 8/12 chicks, two of which had a wonky leg. One chick unfortunately had to be put down as one of his legs pretty much stuck out at a right angle and the other had a less serious case of what seemed like the same injury. He is now 8 week old and eats, plays and runs around like any of his brothers or sisters. Today, I had another 18 eggs start to hatch. Only two have unzipped at this point with a few others pipping but already I have noticed with one of the chicks is having trouble walking/standing - the same as my previous hatch. I don't think the condition is spraddle leg as my floor is non-slip and it always seems to be the one leg having the issues. I'm thinking it might have something to do with a slipped tendon but I am wondering if anyone else would have any ideas as to why this is happening (could it be genetic) /if it can be fixed/and how it can be prevented in the future. I got my eggs from the same people and via the post. The first two with the injury were Australorps and the one currently is a Wyandotte. I don't know if it's worth mentioning but I have noticed that my incubator sometimes didn't turn both batches of eggs very efficiently as they would occasionally get jammed under one another. I'm sorry for the bombardment of information but any advice would be a huge help!!
