    Just wondered if anyone has experenced this problem and how bad is it, is there any hope, etc?

    I have a very cheap vet that would probably TRY to put it back in its socket, but its been out since his birth and he is about 3 weeks now, I didnt realize exactly what the prob was before now, as he had spraddle leg and was working on fixing that, seemed to get better temporarily then this happened when I did the bandaid thing.

    I did a search and found very little hope but very little info on dislocated hips in poultry. The poor lil guy is so tame from me working on him.

    Any tips will help, I cant put it back in myself, I tried and just cant get it in there and dont want to hurt him, I am too much of a soft touch. He still is able to move his foot, muscles, etc. [​IMG]

    Thanks for any info
