I have a 5 week old Rhodebar chick with a twisted leg. I think it was a splayed tendon initially. I attempted to get it back in position by splinting, etc, but I was too late.The leg is now twisted to one side, and the chick drags it behind itself. The leg is not 'dead', just badly twisted and the toes have curled. I can't afford to have a vet do an amputation, so I'd like to try it myself. I have read a few threads on here about amputation, but would like some advice from those of you who have done it. . I'll cull if I have too, but I'd really like to try to save it if I can.
