    I can fix it on a new chick but if it is over 3 days old I never have success. I put one down this year that I could not get fixed and it was so bad I knew it would not live a decent life but i had kept trying until it was 6 weeks old. Just really sad. I am working on another one now and fear it will be just as bad, though I have fixed others in the past but rolling the tendon around to the correct spot and taping. The chicks hate it but it is a few short days and when I remove the tape the leg works fine.
