    My little Americauna has a leg that just is not right. I have the toes now facing more forward than they were. The whole foot was turned backwards when he hatched. At that time he was walking on his ankle and now he seems to be walking on his elbow. He is the sweetest little chick, but I do not know what to do to help him if there is anything can be done. Please help if you can. The one leg seems fine the other as you can see from the pic kinda of bends out. He can stand on it and move it, but normally doesn't.
