what I've done is put them in a set of show pens on the floor with food and water but also lets the cock feed them

I would certainly keep an eye on it. See how it stands when being fed. It could just be the way it’s standing. Looks like it is rearing up at you only just going back on it’s legs.

Hopefully it will be ok George, could be a weakness somewhere but should make up ok as it grows. Its just worth keeping notes of this sort of thing so as you follow the birds development and career these traits can be bred out if they do prove to be a weakness.

I have been watching the breeding line very carefully  Trevor  I think it's a gene problem
