    hi there just looking for some help. I have two buff orpington both about one month old. One of them is quite wobbly on her feet and seems to have a limp. There is a small black spot on one finger of her left foot. It doesnt look broken but this foot or leg definately seems to be the reason she is limping. She also is quite a bit larger than the other. Is there a chance she is putting on too much weight and cannot support herself? She has been like this for about a week and i dont know how to help her. She is still eating and drinking water, and as far as i can tell is pooping okay too. any help is appreciated!
