    I have a 3 day old chicken with spradle leg. It only affects one leg. I've had it in a braces since it hatched. It hasn't really improved. The chick actually got around ok when I removed the brace . It held the splayed leg up a just hopped around on a foot. I'm wondering if it doesn't improve will it be able to live a "normal" life?

    You should to keep it on for longer. 3 days isn't much. Keep trying.
    Good luck!
