    I have two silkies. They are 2 weeks old and one is growing much faster than the other. They were initially with several other chicks (the same age) in a brooder. After a day or the yellow silkie was laying with her leg out. I thought it was spadle leg and followed The Chicken Chicks recommendations. She is eating, drinking and able to move but is still wobbly. This is a pic of her resting and a video of her moving. Any ideas? [​IMG]

    I kept her hobbled for 3 days and un-hobbled each day to check her progress. She was definitely progressing but is still favoring her right leg. Thanks for links. I'll check them out[​IMG]
