Our chick arrived from the hatchery with this problem that looks like a deformity. Its hock joint is very enlarged. It will not use that leg to walk on. Hobbles around using the other foot. Is there ANY way to fix this? Seems like the bandaid splint technique wouldn't work in this situation. Doesn't seem like a slipped joint. Chick seems to be a fighter but I don't think it's getting as much food & water as it should. Stays sitting down or lying down most of the time. Hard to get a good pic but hopefully it'll help! Please let me know if you've seen this before. My kids are now attached to this poor crippled chick!
