    Lots of noise and moving around, but the one leg looks crooked. It hatched about 2 hrs ago, is there hope? A way to treat it?

    There are lots of videos and threads showing toe, foot and leg splints. I have had a few hatch with hip displacement and was unable to fix most of them and had to cull chicks. Good luck and happy new year.

    Yes, it does look like a hip. I fixed a few chicks and the recovery was very quick. some of those chicks didn't make it. YouTube has great videos. I had trouble with wire pipe cleaner techniques.

    Hope this works, we'll see how it does in the morning.

    Thanks for responding and a happy new year! [​IMG]

    Most stubborn quail ever, found it in the incubator with both legs pointing straight to the back [​IMG]
    It looks like it flying....
