    Thanks Countryboy, Do you think taping it with a bandaid like for Spraddle Leg would help???

    I would certainly give it a shot... Can you tell if the hip is out of the joint?

    Bobbie, I don't know unless it's turned out at the hock joint, which would indicate a slipped tendon. But it sounds like it's turned outward higher up, from what you've said, from the hip area, right? In that case, I really don't know what to tell you.

    Thanks Cyn, I have a bandaid on it now, maybe that will help, seems to be in the thigh area where it connects to the body??? Hopefully the bandaid will help, it is the Cuckoo X from Twila, It is getting around and eating good, just looks odd. Thanks again!!!

    Ok so the band aid was no good, upon closer examination it seems to be in the chicks knee (elbow)??? Looks like it is double jointed moves both ways, any ideas how to fix that one???
