    Good Morning! I have a question regarding a chick I hatched about 3 days ago. She has a leg that wings out to the side, she's not able to walk on it at all. It's like the leg is spraddled or something like that. What would I be best trying to do??

    Thanks for your time.

    you need to make a splint out of a bandaid. cut a regular size bandaid in half length wise. then wrap each end around the chicks legs and use the padded part as the space in between the legs. somewhere here on the forum is a lady who has pics of what to do. it works.
