Hi! I need some help about Guinea fowls. We recently hatched Guinea fowls and one of the babies cant stand up and it's legs are always on the side, he's around 4-5 days old, is there any way to help it?

Search the Emergencies forum for splayed leg. The treatment for keets is the same as for chicks.

Splayed leg is usually treatable if caught early! I’ve used a stretchy bandaid, as well as a rubber band that is taped in the middle. I agree with R2elk - look up splayed or spraddle leg and treat ASAP.
