    [​IMG] My 10 year old daughter was given two newly hatched chicks yesterday. They are 2 days old or so. Yesterday they were doing great... they still are however this morning when we woke up I noticed one of the chicks was dragging one of it's legs behind her...not putting any weight on it at all. She is hopping around and eating but I am worried to death!! I am new to raising chickens...so please somebody help. Is it broken? Sprained? Like I said she is still hopping around and eating and drinking but I am very concerned.

    Thanks!!!!!!!

    Have you felt it's legs to see if anything is broken?
