    I have 25 buff Orpington chicks. One that has always been the smallest is hardly able to walk, leaning far forward it seems with her wings spread out to keep her balance The other chicks are walking all over it, she just keeps trying to hide. I've separated her and given food and water. Any ideas on what else to do?

    Some chicks have wobbly legs when they are born. What you can do it gently but firmly wrap medical bandage on her legs to ensure they are growing straight. If that doesnt work, take her to the vets.
