My week old chick was fine legs straight up until Monday Approx. . I wasn’t sure what it was . She stands fine and walks fine but fork legs are bent the tendon weak and collapsing . Would hobbles help? I can’t try to get better pictures if needed with out heat lamp on .

Funny you mention that i wondered if it could happen in chickens ( I have only been raising chickens a year . This was my first time incubating ) But this is what horses get from birth . I am going to go back into my first photos. I am pretty sure he was normal and it didn’t start until day 6 or 7 . I did speak to my vet she told me to use the Critical Care a pinch for him . I had this for a sick chicken of my bosses that died .
