    OK, I have a 3 day old baby with spraddle legs...not too bad but definitely spraddled some. I used a tiny piece of adhesive tape for the splint and this chick is going nuts! He's rolling all over the brooder and picking at it incessantly. Do they get used to it after a while??

    I think he will get use to it over time !!!!! Just make sure he is still eating and drinking, also not getting pick on by the others !!!!!
