I have a little Belgian D'Uccle who was hatched a tad over 3 weeks ago. He had spraddle leg, and we fashioned some sort of harness to try to solve the issue. It was not successful and I figured "nature would take it's course". He made it! He is currently 1/2 the size of his hatch mates and against all odds has survived. His one leg is normal...while the other is 180 degrees backwards. We have him "casted" tonight. Long term...what do you think his life expectancy is? He really grew on us with his will to survive. He has been named "Forrest Gump".
