    Hi all,
    I thought that my chick had a splayed leg. Splinting has not worked, I cannot tell of the achille's tendon is displaced [​IMG]

    I started with some range of motion, and I was curious if anyone can help my poor little silkie or has any other ideas about this.

    Do you think it has the possibility to walk normally? For now it hobbles along on it's bad foot. Otherwise, it is thriving. BTW, it is one week old.

    (I have pictures and details about what I have been trying on my blog if you would like more information.)

    Thank you,
