    I have a 2 day old chick with a leg issue. At first I assumed spraddle leg/splay leg but splinting for a hobble is doing nothing for her mobility. I have been dropper feeding and hydrating since she can't get around. She doesn't seem like she can really move her feet and is walking on her hocks. As a result they are getting g raw and whatnot

    Anyone have any successful hints?

    In my experience with chicks this bad off, I had to cull them. I am sorry I don't have more info.
