    My chick, Tinkerbell, was born 2 days early. She had splay legs in the begining and the bandaid thing seemed to work great. But sudenly since the morning of the 18th she can't walk. She can only flop around using her wings and usually winds up on her side. She's eating and drinking fine. I don't know if this is a factor but we lost power the night before this started and her heat lamp was off all night.
