    Hi, my barred rock is very unsteady and has a slightly crooked leg. She seems to have no other problem then that... I have read some other comments on other threads that say to use vit b and e. I dont know how much... or what would work better. Does anyone know what this could be or what I should do?!?!

    [​IMG]so sorry to hear about your baby girl! I was told that smooth surfaces at a young age causes hobbled knees. They can't get traction, so legs get weak. I would definitely check out that link. Good luck with her![​IMG]
