    As the thread title sais there is absolutely everything wrong with my new baby chick but ( Blondie is her name) she is the sweetest little thing you ever saw. Very small and very smart. Her and her sister blacky are inseparable. I have helped her with the sprag leg by having her wear a brace I made out of a hair tie and some tape and I put bandaid on her feet to spread out the toes. All worked well and she us a happy bunny well a happy chickie. But the one thing I don't know how to fix is her inward turned foot. Any ideas???

    You've been given some great links. Good luck. I've had several babies turn out well after taping legs and putting booties on those toes. :)
