    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 :(

    We are having the exact same problem as you are with your chick! Can pop it back in but as soon as you let go it pops right out! So frustrating!!!!! How are things going for you and your ?
