    So i found out my chicken looks hurt because it can't seem to walk straight and has wobbly legs. Its eating and drinking normally. .. is also aware of its surroundings ie it tries to run when i catch it. It's poop is also normal. .. heres a pic.
    Please help !
    Oh ya and it is the smallest one in the group so it is likely that it gets beat up. .. But i mean not that bad and it has been going on for a while.

    Is it in with other roosters? As in it is a rooster right? Hard to tell as I'm on my phone so it's not a very big photo but looks like three roosters? If you have a lot of roosters in a small flock it's quite feasible they have tried to kill the lowest one and that's what has caused this.
