My two and a half weeks old squab has one leg that splays awkwardly out to the side. He has a very hard time walking on it because it slips outwards, but manages just fine in the nest. He's gotten his fair share of crop milk and is bigger than his nestmate, but I'm concerned about how he will fare when his parents stop feeding him. Will he be okay on just one leg? My initial hope was to use him in my breeding program, but does this leg problem sound like a hip deformity? If that is the case, should I keep him out of the program? Thank you for any help!
