    Seems like I have read of a similar question before, awhile back. I am new at this myself. Hopefully someone out there has an answer for you soon. [​IMG]

    I've had a chick with this in the past. There is a way to tape the legs together so that the crooked leg is kept in alignment. I'm sure someone will come along with the site that shows you how. Good luck with your little one.
