    I recently got a box of two-week old chickens from a poultry auction, sight unseen. While they all appear perky and happy, one seems to have a twisted leg.

    We googled perosis and it looks a little like that, it looks a little less like the REALLYSUPERAWFUL slipped tendon pictures and more just bent. The chick is currently eating, drinking, and getting around just fine, if a bit lame.

    Is there anything I can do for it to help? Is two weeks old (and change) too late to make little hobbles for it? The chick is currently eating medicated chick starter and if necessary, I will look into a vitamin supplement for it's water (any reccommendations?).

    Thank
    you!
