    I have a chick born a couple days ago, it has one leg that it keeps straight all the time, how do I help correct it? [​IMG]
    I tried putting a bandage on both legs but it just falls over and chirps like crazy.

    Sounds like a slipped tendon, do a search on BYC for "treating slipped tendon".
