I have a young bird that has splayed legs. (The bird is a bob-white not a chicken but this board has so much good info I am hoping someone can help.) He or she is six weeks old and the problem just developed. I have seen pictures of a splint, however I can't remember where. And also I am wondering how effective the splinting is likely to be. I was hoping to release this bird and one other. (I have a relatively safe place - a stable with no cats and several chickens.) Thanks for any advice.
