    Hi, I have 8,out of 9 chicks, 1 more to hatch. One of my chicks has splayed legs it's about a day old now, it was hatched in a brinsea incy with a grid, now it's in a broody box with a T Towel on the floor, I'm not sure wat to do. Some1 z u have to destroy it, is it that bad that they can't walk??
