    I have a chick with a slipped tendon. I can slip the tendon back but can't seem to wrap it up. Whenever I pull on the leg it is so painful she cries and cries. She is hopping and eating and drinking.

    I am going to take her to the feed store tomorrow where I bought her to see if they can help me bind her leg after we slip the tendon back. I am just curious what the survival rate is for this. I think it has been too long for the tendon to go back :(
