Hi. I've recently token in a baby chick with a broken leg. My grandfather has a chicken farm and he was going to leave it to die. At first I thought it was just really swollen from the other chickens pecking it so I put it in a cage with food and water hoping it would just heal if he/she rested but now it is obvious it is broke. Please tell me how I can make some sort of splint of some sort! I'm desperate

IMHO cull. If you want to be a HERO, simply wrap a coupla wraps of masking or cello tape around the leg, and leave it alone. If it is separtaed it will never heal. It could be pulled from the socket. Too many things to go wrong. Did a parakeets lower leg once as a kid, It was twisted funny if you loooked, but lived a long life of years.

Your call.

No not trying to be a HERO, simply trying to help a little living thing? But thanks anyway for the help
