    i just saw him running away in a weird way when i come by the brooder. he/she is a little over 1 week mabye 1-3 days.
    after 1 week i moved them to a bigger brooder.With newpapers for the first few days.

    That does not look good at all [​IMG]
    He wasn't born with it 'cause you would of noticed it? Does it hurt him to try stretch it out normally? If he was born with it I'm pretty sure there are ways to correct it
    I hope he's going to be ok [​IMG]
