I just got my first order of chicks on Friday. Out of the 4 Silkies I ordered only 2 are thriving. One died a few hours after arrival (I'm pretty sure it had just been smushed by the other chicks while shipping) and one, while seemingly healthy and very alert, just can't walk. This little one, whom we been calling Igor because of it's problems, holds one leg perfectly under his/her body and pushes around with the other, which sticks out to the side a bit. It doesn't stick out like the pictures of spraddle leg that I've seen so I'm thinking it might be rickets. Has anyone had this problem before? The most troublesome side affect is that Igor can't stand at all. S/he pushes around the little box I have it in, mostly in circles, but doesn't seem to be improving. I've been hand feeding it gruel through a syringe. At first Igor sucked it down, but doesn't seem interested today. I wanted to do everything I could before I wrote poor little Igor off as a lost cause. Any advice? I'm trying not to get attached, since I know it is probably a losing battle, but that's hard when you are hand feeding such a cute little chick. On a positive note, the rest of my chicks are doing wonderfully. They are precious and hilarious!
