I picked up this chick (along with 5 others) yesterday at tractor supply. She is a bantam (not sure what breed). The lady gave her to us for free because of a leg problem she has. I have been trying to fix her leg all day using Hair bands, band aids, bread ties, goze tape, etc. Nothing seems to be working.
She has feeling in her leg because occasionally when one of the other bantams step on or peck her leg she will chirp and move away. I am making sure that she is drinking (I am working on the food part.). She also has save-a-chick in her water.
My questions include:
-What can I do for her leg?
-What are the chances that if we cannot fix her leg that she will be able to thrive as an adult bird?
-How can I fix her leg?
