We got our chicks yesterday and one of the mottled Javas has had issues from the get go. The left leg is to the side rear, while the right leg is normal. We figured spraddle, but we've never had experience with it. The chick can walk, though slowly and very clumsy. We've done the band-aid thing below the "knee" joint, just above the feet (too fuzzy above the joint). The chick still walks very clumsily (it's been ~24hrs, so I know it's kinda early). But, to me (not worth much!) it seem to be in the hock/hip area. The leg feels fine..no break, no swelling, no obvious pain, no blood,etc. We got 51 chicks, so maybe it happened as an injury? Birth defect? If it is spraddle, can it occur in one leg? I am not gonna cull the chick. It can eat, drink, it's happy, LOUD, etc. Just VERY clumsy and handicapped in the one leg. I'd like to correct it if possible (whatever it may be). Anyone have any ideas and/or suggestions? ETA: The chick does not drag it's leg, the leg just doesn't sit in the right place and causes VERY poor balance and movement.
