Quote:I had a baby chick with a messed up hock joint. I used a straw that I cut open up the side and slipped it on him. Worked great for him. Not sure if a broken leg would be treated the same. try goggling it and see if you can find some advise. Good luck. ps, I used a regular light bulb for a brooder. just adjusted until I found the right wattage to tempature. just be careful with any light next to card board. Thanks! I figure the straw idea should work to help set up his leg for healing.
