3week old chick with a bad foot and straddle leg - Page 2

Oh ok. I am all new to all of this. I know it's little knee joint is all stiff and won't bend out straight. It's so sad. I'm not sure if I can do anything to help it now with it being 3 weeks old. I have banded its legs back together.

Honestly Idk. I had the same problem and ended up culling him

The one I have now though. I integrated him into the rest and he's doing great. I'm not sure how it will affect him in the future though. Only time will tell

Mine still has the problem but it is beyond able to fix. He acts fine and can stand and run. Time will tell. Thanks for the concern

I want to thank all of y'all for the information. But we felt that it was beyond being fixed and no way for the little chick to have to live, we had to put it down. It broke our hearts but I truly feel it was the right thing to do. I really wish I had known more when it was born, maybe I could have fixed it up.😭
