I purchased 3 Silkie chicks and the owner gave me two chicks that needed help! In the box at the store there were Silkies and mixed bantams. The first one I think is a Silver Sebright. All of its toes on one foot curled under and it couldn't straighten them out. So... I saw this on here and decided to try it: I drew a pattern of the bottom of its foot and cut it out of a "Breathe Right" nose strips!! LOL!!! It has some light plastic in it. Then I taped it to the bottom of the chick's foot and wrapped around each toe and the foot with bandaid tape. How long should I leave it on there? This chick looks like a Silkie but it is tiner than the 3 I paid for. They are the smae age! It has a badly dislocated joint in its leg. I got it back in place but it wouldn't stay. I don't know if there are broken bones in there or not. Again, I used "Breathe Right" nasal strips for the light wt plastic and made a splint. I then used the tape from a bandaid to wrap it. Hope this works. What do you think and how long should it stay??? Thanks!!
