Tuesday night 3 chickes hatched. last night I came home and saw 1 marans chicke had spraddle leg. They were on paper towels, not newspaper. Upon closer examination I discovered that the toes were curled on both feet. I put bandaid boots on him to straighten the toes and bandaid braces on his legs. The poor thing cannot stand at all with his orthopedics. I am also giving him polyvisol drops dribbled on his beak. The others roll him around the brooder, so I brought him to work with me. I have a few questions: 1. should he be able to stand with his orthos? One foot is very bent. 2. when should I take the orthos off to check for improvement? 3. What is the proper amount of polyvisol? 4. Is there anything else I can do? 5. Have I lost my mind?
