    Hey all


    Picked up 6 BLRW chicks and after picking up I noticed it was lifeless and flopping all over the box.

    I took it out and gave dipped its beak in my daughters juice box( literally all I had!) and sat it on my heat vent in my truck!

    Chicken little made it home and now 4 hours later is eating,drinking and sleeping a bit more than the others but I suspect it’s playing catch up. It is walking but has a strange stance. More upright and flat if that makes sense...

    Any advice?

    Should I band the legs even though it’s getting around good?

    It doesn't look like splayed leg from the photo, so it's hard to say. How is she today? I'm assuming the issue is she is kind of leaning forward?

    She was very splayed leg in her box and after a few hours on shavings it corrected but she walks very forward but all in all ok
