We recently went to the local farm store and saw a chick with a tucked leg. There was one other with a deformity but it was too bad and we decided to leave it because there was nothing really we could do. This one could have a deformity but a lot of things happen when the chicks are transported, including injuries like this one. Its only a few days old and is a little red ranger, though its foot is curled and mostly tucked under it. It does stretch it out when it stands but it doesn't stand on it. When we try to help it it peeps loud like its in horrible pain. I usually just tuck it into my hand when its not in its box. I put a soft fuzzy slipper in there so it tucks itself in there and I monitor it so it doesn't get too hot. I dip its beak in water ever so often and it eats a lot and its poop looks normal. We found a complete tutorial on how to splint it but will it be good for the chick. And what way do we splint it? Straight, curved, angled? I am just very confused and I am hoping someone will help us out here. I don't want to have a chick in pain and not have a way to raise it and give it a chance. c: I will provide pictures if needed, but its food doesn't look deformed just broken/sprained, possibly dislocated.
