    Hello, My chick has one leg out. I have seen the video using the straw and rubber band, also read the description of using a tape/band aid. Which treatment do you suggest is best. I tried the straw one, but, don't think I had the distance between her leggs right. What is the distance it should be?

    I've used bandaid. . It ended up dieing. . But I'd try it again if I had to..

    Far as distance look at other chicks.. put it about that far

    she's doing really well. Just her right leg is out and she has a hard time walking. I finally got the rubber band with the straw on it, like the Garden Hen guy's video. I made it to be 1 1/4". So far it's seem comfortable on her. She is napping right now.
