    I have a 3 week old Barred Rock..yesterday they all seemed fine (I have 6).. today I came home and one was favoring one wing and one leg and can't stand up. She has been rolling on to her back.. WHAT IS WRONG??

    I though maybe an injury, but not sure ...

    Are they in the heat?
    Is that one eating and drinking?

    it was cool here today.. only 27c / 80 ish farenheit.. I made sure she had water (eyedropper).. off to the feed store now with her to see what they think.

    and yes.. she was eating.

    will do.. Its seems like she may have dislocated it somehow.. the one leg is not moving too much. Waiting on a phone call from a local vet that works with livestock.. going to see what he suggests..

    brought her to the vet this morning, and had her euthanized.. seems that she may have damaged some nerves as it affected her wing too..
