    She hatched in late November. At first we thought she had gotten a leg caught in the egg turner and was injured. One leg was OK. I have been keeping her in an aquarium with deep litter. At this time, she cannot walk at all.
    My question is, if I make a sling and put her legs in splints to straighten, is it likely this would work?
    Not sure of her breed, she is all white. Not an egg breed, but a meat breed I think.
    I must add, I do not think this is a disease but a mechanical injury that has not healed.
    Thanks for any advice.
