Hi to everyone, I'm new to the forum, but have been a regular visitor to the site over the past year. We have a few bantam chickens and have had a lot of problems with predators and insects killing off our young (mostly dogs, cats, snakes, and ants - the ants are the most difficult to keep out). This time, we decided to take 2 of the eggs and hatch them in an incubator in the hope of giving them a head start. Only 1 hatched, but she (we assume female) has developed really well inside the house. We had not noticed any leg problems until just over a week ago when we observed her left leg appeared to be weak and showing signs of splaying. The hip join looks loose but there are no signs of injury (redness, swelling etc) The chick does not show any signs of discomfort and, although wobbly, does not appear to have slowed down much mobility-wise. We have tried using a short length of plastic drinking straw and a rubber band to brace the leg. This aided her walking for a while, but, after removing the brace a few days later, she doesn't appear to have improved. I've given her vitamin supplements in her drinking water and finely crushed eggshell in her food. Her appetite is amazing! I've attached 2 short videos to show her walking. When she sits and sleeps, she tends to have the effected leg out to the side, which I'm sure does not help her condition. To aid this, I've cupped my hand and supported her body while she slept in my hand, but obviously I cannot do this all the time. When doing this, I've tried to keep her legs together under her body. She seems to like this position and is happy to sleep in my hand. We are in Thailand and one of the local elders has suggested (Thai traditional method) using the leaf of a certain type of plant to wrap the legs in a similar way to how we treated her for splayed leg. I'm ok to try bracing the leg again, but fear I could be making matters worse if splayed leg is not the issue here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am desperate to help this little chick. Thank you in advance.
