Hi. Was about to write a question and saw this thread. Not sure what "splay leg" is? Or if this is the same issue one of my chicks has? I have a little plump 6 week old chick, who is "squatting" and not interested in walking around. When it does walk, it walks like a penquin! It is eating and growing and it generally doing well. Lazy?!? Any advice would be gratefully accepted.
