    I have a white keet that's a little over a month old and has developed sprawled legs, how can I fix them?

    You can try taping them close together, in a normal position, with a Bandaid.

    Do a search on here for "spraddle leg." Lots of invo.

    post some pics, if it is young enough you can correct it- i have one from the feedstore that i didn't get to soon enough so he can't walk- also do a search for splayed legs, here is a link to my keet

    he is currently living in the living room so he can be monitored-

    keep us posted

    They are still small like the size of a doves body or smaller. And Idk what causes the leg problem as it only started to show a couple days ago.
