I had this young barred rock chicken named vulture. he seemed to be a runt. but he was pretty much fine until one day, i went to feed him and he was literally "sitting" on his butt! he looked like a penguin. and when he walked, he really looked like a penguin waddling. and i would try to get him to stand and he would fall and sit on his butt again. so I would separate him from the rest of the chickens and give him a bowl of chick food. then I came back a few hours later and he was walking normally. then a few days later, he would do it again! then get better. does anyone know what was wrong with him?
this is what he looks like:
