Help my baby chick
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I've only had one chick with splay leg, and I used a strip of bandaid to hobble the legs about an inch or more apart. It took 4 days, and the chick had problems with balance, but finally got the hang of it. A slipped tendon could be a problem that is almost very hard to treat. A search at the top of this page will bring up many threads about slipped tendon and what it looks like. One leg will usually stick out with the foot turned outward.
