    Hello all- I just got my chicks today, and all are great except one of my Cornish X's. It can't stand up. It has been pulling itself around the brooder with it's legs kind of at it's sides. (I can post a pic if need be.) I know about the leg problems that the Cornish X's can have, but is that what this is, or do they sometimes just get a slow start? If it is a problem, is there any way to save the chick? Only one out of 28 is doing this. Thanks!

    Could this chick have spradle legs? If so, treat like any other type of chick.
