Her legs are underneath her as in she is almost completly lying on them both. I know its not spraddle leg because they arent out to the side, Nie Szukaj Jej - Grupa ABC Andrzeja Nebeskiego* - Grupa ABC Andrzeja Nebeskiego instead infront of her. She is rather weak and want doing so well right after she hatched, would that have something to do with it?
Anything helps! Jan 26, Post 2 of When she tries to walk does she fall over sideways? Jan 27, Post 3 of Jan 27, Post 4 of It seems to want to like try and slide itself almost, it doesn't seem to be able to lift its body off the ground to walk. It can move around some but with waht looks like much difficulty, like I said its legs are almost all the way underneath it and it can lift istself up, so thats how it tries to walk.
Jan 28, Post 5 of I hope your chick makes a recovery. I had a chick hatch like that, it shuffled along almost penguin like. It only moved when it had to ie eating and drinking, the rest of the time it sat in a corner sleeping.
I tried physio, vitamins and a few other thing but it never recovered. I did not have the heart to cull, apart from not getting about much, she seemed ok and content. Sadly she died today age 17 weeks old, she still had not feathered out properly and was the size of a week old.
I hope you find a solution to your chicks problem. Jan 28, Post 6 of Lots of species have something called "Failure to thrive". No matter what you try to do for them, they just are not strong enough. Jan 28, Post 7 of Awwww so sorry. This must be very sad for you. Jun Floogie Walk - Various - Cab - Ella & ChickPost 8 of Floogie Walk - Various - Cab - Ella & Chick I know this is an old article, but just in case it helps someone else, this sounds as though the chicks tendons were misplaced.
I had one like this - its legs were stuck out to the front and it literally dragged itself to move - occasionally flapping its wings - it almost looked like a bat crawling on a wall. Anyway, I worked with it because I knew it had stood briefly at first hatching, so figured it wasn't anything too serious. I spent a few hours gently massaging the legs and stretching them out backwards I did this roughly for a few minutes roughly every half houras well as holding the chick up hanging its legs and putting the feet to the ground.
Having gone to bed and seen no change I was awoken a few hours later by a very happy Rock You - Various - Hard Attack 84 chick bragging very loudly about being able to strut its stuff.
I don't know if I overdid it because that chick could really jump, and ran the fastest backwards I've ever seen, but I am certainly not complaining. I too have had these situations where I've helped a chick out of the egg and though probably not the best move, sometimes you can get over it so I post this just in case it works for someone else.
