    Maybe give him/her some iron free baby vits? I had one like that and the vitamins helped clear up the problem.

    Bless it's sweet little heart. [​IMG] It breaks my heart to see a little one like this. I hope the little one gets better soon.

    She can't put the left leg down. It almost looks like it was caught on something. You know like when a kitten gets its claws stuck in your curtains and can't pull it loose. Does she peep alot? I think if her leg was broken she would be in pain and sounding off about it. What a sweet little baby. You can see even her mama doesn't know what to do with her.

    Aww I'm so sorry. She is adorable though and will probably live a good life with a little extra care right now. I have several special needs chickens and all of them are doing great. I hope she makes it.
