We have one 2 week old chick that has developed trouble walking. Hasn't had any accidents that we know of but it is our 6 year olds chick. It uses both legs but is wobbly and would rather be laying down. She is growing well, eating,drinking, and her feathers are coming in nicely. The other chicks aren't being mean to her but we gave her her own box tonight to rest. Thoughts?

We separated for a day but she chirped constantly. Put her back with the others and she seems happier. They don't pick on her either.

I have had chicks do this and you have to let it develop that let or give the leg support. When it was born it was unable to develop the abitu to stand up properly.
