    Our 2 m/o emu chick appears to have a broken toe. She staggers a lot and falls over; it looks like she is favoring her left foot (where the "bad" toe is). Should I splint the whole foot? I don't want to make it so that she hurts herself more.

    We've already lost a chick to an injured knee -- please help us save our baby! [​IMG]
