Material needed : a newly hatched chick.. one or 2 days old.. the newer the better.. a popsicle stick (spacer between the legs) a strip of duct tape, 3/8" wide by 2 inches long, cut the popsicle stick so it is a piece about as long as it is wide.. lay the wood on the tape about 1 inch from the end. hold the chick in your hand upside down with the tail end facing away from you.. place the wood next to the inside of the shank of the lower leg and wrap the 1" piece of tape around the leg and attach it to the wood.. now bring the second leg to the edge of the wood and wrap the tape around the leg and to the piece of wood.. continue wrapping the tape around both legs until it is all used up.. make sure that you have the legs even and the feet facing in the down position.. lay the chick in a warm brooder on it's side.. It will eventually right itself and learn to hop on both feet to get around.. the more it struggles the better..after about 24 hours, carefully remove the tape. do not feel sorry for it and hold it.. just leave it on it's own.. do not watch it, this is a slow process and there is nothing to see.. don't worry about food or water.. at this young age it will survive.. However,,I have had chicks learn to eat and drink hobbled like this.. But if a chick falls into the water, he could drown..
