My 5day old baby chick's right foot is slightly crooked I tried treating her by putting her in boots for 2days to straighten it but it is not working and now I she is also having splayed legs. Can you please tell me if there is any way to treat her? She is one of 16 chicks born by artificial incubation her siblings are healthy except her.She also had problem during hatching as she was the last egg which took almost two days.

I tried to correct splayed leg on my pigeons with no success, but others did have success. You can install a rubber band to keep the two legs in the approximate distance apart. as your other chicks. Maybe the chick will grow, and the legs will develop correctly.
