Saddle/sprawl leg help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, i have been reading lots of post on sprawl leg on chicks. I recently had a very tough hatch ans one chick resulted in sprawl leg. I applied a bandaid and it has been 24 hours. The chick still hasnt stood upright and lays a lot, but hasnt fallen over in 12 hours or so. I keep a towel there to keep him up a little. Can anyone tell me if this is normal behavior or look right. Id like to make sure i am doing this correct.

I agree.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Looks like the chick is sitting back on it's hocks.  I'm sorry I don't know what to suggest.
