LOOK HERE SON...... HEY.....
DID YOU MAKE THE ELECTROLYTE SOLUTION I POSTED??
DID U PUT the chick IN some kinda CUP??
CAN we SEE THE SICK CHICK aGAIN PLEASE? I will need to see the chick legs to see if it needs leg splints or extra care!
WEAK CHICKS, Spraddle legs, ODD legs, ETC.....
There are options of taping chicks legs together, HOWEVER, those are horrible and other chicks pick on them, they are non stop chirping and falling over, pain in the butt period....
If you can put them in a cup that forces the feet into position under them it can work a lot quicker and less stressful for the chicks. Thanks to a tip from BYC member Blarney love that chick! Just dont overheat them in the cup, take them out to feed and water them and give them some exercise and see how they are doing!
