    One of my new silkie chicks seems to not want to use one of her legs, she is holding it up so it dosen't hit the ground, and hopping or scooting along. I tried the band aid cure thinking it might be splay leg, but she still didn't want to put weight on it, which makes me think its something else. Shes doing fine otherwise, so I'm not sure what to do!

    pics arent great, I can post a vid of her hopping if that would be more help[​IMG][​IMG]

    Bumping this thread. She is clearly in pain with the leg and I'm thinking we might have to put her down, don't want her to keep suffering :(.
