    I posted this in the raising chicks section as well. But I have a 3 weeks old chick who I think got stomped by the other chicks. She is not using her leg and it is sticking out to the side with some swelling up in the Knee?? joint. She is eating and drinking and hobbling around but I was wondering if I could splint this or something to help her out. It has been about a week I wanted to leave it to see if it was justa sprain and would heal on its own but she is not getting any better. If this is something I could splint could someone possibly post pics to help me out with this??
    Thank you in advance...
