    I tried a tea cup method for my Pekin's sprawled legs, but the monkey kept jumping out and one of the other chicks took his place, so I got a slim tall mug and he still managed to get out, plus I was not happy with the fact he had no access to food or water and I had no idea how long it would take for his legs to become normal, so I turned to another piece of advice from the forum, to use a sticky plaster, the length of the pad part of the plaster was just the right size for the gate of the tiny chick, the plaster fell off after only one day, but I didn't have to re-apply as he's legs are no longer a problem and he is running around like it never happened.

    My chick and I say, thank you to everyone BYC who has the knowledge and shares it with others.

    We usually wrap a piece of medical tape on their legs. An leave them in with the others so there is food n water.
