I have a two day old orpington cross chick, with a badly deformed leg beneath the hock.
The other leg isn't as twisted but is splayed out. I have fixed splayed leg before with great results though I have never seen
any thing like this before. The leg is twisted up so when you look at the chick from above you can see the bottom of its foot
instead of the top. Does anyone know what I could do to fix the legs? The chick is eating and drinking and very strong, so I don't want to cull.
