    [​IMG]how old is the chick? Day old chicks may be unsteady - have you noticed anything wrong with legs or toes? Is she the only chick you have, or one of a group?

    I'd suggest you ask in the illness/injury forum. Good luck, hope your Minny is alright

    She is in a group of 5 there were six but one passed on the way here. Her left foot seems messed up and crooked she doesn't put weight on it.
