hi all
This chick was the last to hatch and about a day late, is a cream legbar and a lot bigger than the others we hatched.
She had splayed legs so we splinted and they have come in really well from about 180° to almost normal.
But we think one of her hips looks wrong and she isnt really trying to walk. She is eating and drinking and very alert, but she does make a lot of noise - is she in pain? Can we fix this at all?

Aw, poor little chick. Can you upload a video of her walking? Maybe she has a slipped tendon or something. I hope she recovers! Good luck!
