Hi, I read everything I coul about spraddle leg before posting this, but am not reassured... Mine's a Mille fleur d'Uccle chick, 3 weeks old. The first week after hatching I thought one might have spraddle leg but wasn't sure and everyone milled around and looked alike: Too hard to isolate the one I thought was walking funny. Especially with those feathered feet! They waddled and they grew and I realized she was REALLY walking funny. It was like overnight I could tell a difference. I put her in a band-aid right then, but she was already almost 2 weeks old. She has spent almost 2 weeks in band-aids but no definite improvement. She's strong enough that she keeps popping the band aid off, so I wrapped 1/3 of a BIG band-aid around one way, and then another 1/3 around the other way (these are the 4"x1.5" band-aids). She's been in these for only a day, but this looks like it will hold her legs steady for longer than a few hours. We've steadily progressed to bigger band-aids as I tried to find something she couldn't pop. Is she too old for it to work? Should I give it another week or so before I give up? On a spraddle leg chick, does the top of the leg bone feel like it's moved away from the hip (almost sharp)? If it was broken, would it hurt her to have the band-aids put on? She waddles along fine and puts weight on it when it's bound up. She does favor it, but uses it. The 4" band-aid allows her a little more room for a stride. She's active, eats, flutters around during free-range time. She's otherwise healthy & clear-eyed. No noticable size difference. Any suggestions or input? Has anyone had an older chick that has survived treatment and improved?
