I had previously posted about a baby chicken whose leg was sliding out to the side, I used a rubber band and straw,and it appeared better but aways pulling a little to the side-- we left it for a week and it seemed the baby chick was walking better with it. Then I noticed she was always sitting and rarely walking yesterday... I watched for awhile and realized the leg that used to go to the side is going completely backwards and completely opposite the front leg-- she has one leg that faces the front and the other leg has developed a big knot on it and is now facing completely backwards. I'm not sure what happened, but it isn't something that I could just tape forward, it seems to have grown even more deformed in the last day. She is in a broader with just one other baby chick and the other chick doesn't appear to pick on her but seems very protective of her... Any thoughts on what happened and advice on what to do?
