Chick Wont Stand - Bandaid Method??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

BLW keeps left leg splayed out and sometimes wrapped around its head. The right leg tucked under. Won't spread it's feet. Flops and hops about. I've heard of the Bandaid method, but not sure how to do it.

there are many splinting methods most involves using vet wrap. I think it will be really helpful so you can see pictures to type in chick leg splint or chick splinting in the backyard chickens search options. check out what others have done. hope this helps!
