    It could be a slipped tendon, search on here for how to fix it.

    Some people have had good luck fixing it but anytime it has happened to any of my chicks I wasn't abe to get the tendon back in place and had to cull. What does the back of it's hock look like? Is if flat?

    The back of his elbow area. Sings would be curled toes, not walking. There is a ton of info on here, just search it out. I would help out and post links but that is hard to do on the phone.
