Our little rare breed chick that came with our broiler order walks on his knees. His (her?) feet curl up. It was fine and then one day this happened. We think it may have been injured by the larger chicks but we're not sure. It eats and gets around but we'd love to know if anyone else has had this happen. All the other chicks were fine and are now in our freezer :) thanks for any input.

I have this with one of my hens and I attributed this condition to frostbite,now I could be wrong but thats my take.My chickens are free range and I have a heated insulated coop but I leave a small door open year round so they can come and go as they please.

Not frostbite in our case. It started in spring and they were living in the garage brooder box under the heat lamp. He's still roaming around, eating and getting around fine. This may just be one of those mysteries I may never figure out :o)
