Hey good morning to all! We are new at the chicken keeping so when a baby chick came to live with us I noticed his leg was a little stiff and swollen but he was able to eat and drink so I searched on line and couldn't find anything! Then yesterday we found this site! YEAH! Now our chicken is about 3-4 weeks old and someone has pictures on here of exactly what our chicken looks like, only there's is younger. So my question is with a slipped tendon can it be treated when they are already 4 weeks or so of age or is it to late? I noticed yesterday it looks like her lower abondment is swollen and her feathers aren't as thick as the others. They were all brought together and alll of the other chickens are healthy and happy so I reallly don't think there is a disease to worry about? I also noticed that she strains a little to use the potty. So is it to late to do something for her? We really feel bad. She tries to fly and that is how she gets from one side to the next and she is able to eat and drink with no problems Thank you!
