Hi I recently hatched a batch of chicken eggs for a high school biology project last week. The first two babies began hatching Monday and the last baby to hatch was Wednesday morning around 4am. I noticed the last chick to hatch was having a harder time walking around and so when I researched this I thought it was a splayed leg so I put her in a homemade leg brace to try and fix it but after four days it still hadn't resolved. Yesterday morning I saw she had developed a sore that was quite angry looking and so I squeezed all the gunk out and disinfected it but there was no reason or way she could've gotten a cut that far up on her joint unless she had been walking on the joint. So I think she has a slipped tendon. It's been almost a week now and she's very stunted in growth so is there any hope for fixing her leg?
