Chick with clicking ankles???


Oct 22, 2018
Hi, I have a baby chicken just a couple days old that is having some issues. He did struggle to hatch so we had to assist him and after we did he was out within 10 minuets. After a few hours we noticed that he had extremely crooked toes, and his feet are completely turned in. After making him some little shoes and he has been wearing them for a couple of days and we noticed that his ankle are extremely turned in also. After have a proper look at his ankles, we noticed that his ankles click out and then can’t seem to support him. We can move the ankle and it clicks back into the right spot where it is straight but they then pop back out. He also struggles to stand and is constantly chirping. Does anyone know what this could be and if it is treatable?
