    a chick that hatched on new years day has a bum leg. i felt the area around his hip when i saw there was nothing around the knee and the bump wherethe leg fits into the hip is farther up his body than on his other side, he doesnt use that leg at all and has since trained himself to hop on his other leg. he is in nearly constant pain and peeps really loud all night long. I'm fairly certain that his leg is dislocated, and if that is the case, is there anything i can do for him?
