    this is not splayed leg. I am wondering if anyone has experience with this? The chick has legs in front and when it trys to walk it scoots along and cant seem to get legs underneath, but they are not splayed out. they line up the chick just cant get them underneath to walk?

    I had a chick that done that about a week ago. All it could do was wable. I treated it as splayed leg anyway and put a bandaid around it's leg and left it there for about a day and then next day that little chick was walking around. JMHO

    i had a polish like that . even with taping and boots it wasnt able to move. I ended up culling it and burying it in the frontyard behind a daylilly
