    Hi All, I have 10 day old chicks that were normal and now can't walk. Firstly the chick appeared to have one sore leg which it couldn't put weight on, now 14 hours later it can't get up on either leg at all!! One has died which was not so strong when it was born, but this chick was 100% normal 3 days ago and going well. If anyone can tell me what the problem is it would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not sure what the issue is but sometimes a vitamin defiencey can give those symptoms. You might want to just TRY a multi vitamin and see if it makes a difference in your chick. It wouldn't hurt to just try and see if it helps. Make sure the vitamin has b2 in it. If its a brooding defiencey the vitsmins should help her. Like I said not sure if the defiencey is the problem but it wouldn't hurt to try

    Are the toes curling on one or both feet? Without further symptoms, I'd say B2 deficiency.
