We have a chick that won't get on his feet. My wife says it was spraddled legged and so we taped its legs with coban, and its been taped for 2 days now. I have yet to see it get up on its feet. It still seems quite vigorous and noisy (but it is still young and won't be like this for long as its not eating/drinking much). This one did take longer to hatch, and at almost 24hr after pipping, we did help it out of the shell. So its quite possible that this one wasn't supposed to make it. But it did and its here and I'm wondering if there is anything better to be done than the spraddle brace. I've seen the pics of chick sandals for crooked toes and I don't think its a toe issue. it seems like an ankle issue. Currently it gets around on its knees/hocks with the help of wing movements. I was thinking of a sandal that keeps the foot and ankle at a 90deg angle (as right now it doesn't bend the ankle much unless I bend it for it). I've been lifting it up 5-6x/day , using one finger to put its feet on the ground and another finger behind its legs to make the ankle bend and then trying to keep the rest of the body up and let it sometimes do some of the work. I'm not sure its doing anything, I haven't seen any improvement yet. Any thoughts. I'll post a video of it hobbling around if you want.
