    You need to post more information. How old are they and what kind of bedding

    do they have? They may very well have splayed leg, which is actually pretty easy

    to treat. Splayed leg is caused by the chicks being on a 'slippery' bedding like

    newpaper. Newborn chicks can't stand well on things like that. Do they look like

    they're doing the splits?
