So... I have just had some chicks hatch, and most hatched fine... however, I noticed one had splayed legs. It is approx one day old now and I have made hobbles for it to bring its legs in as advised by the internet, but as a result of this, it is walking (stumbelling/flopping along) on its hocks. Because of this, all the tender skin covering its hock joint has rubbed off so it now has wounds on both legs. I have given my best attempt at bandaging its legs to prevent any further damage, but was wondering if anyone else has any suggestions to help me????
