I am new to chickens; my babies were hatched in an incubator where one developed a splayed leg. Thanks to links on BYC I found advice, hobbled him and thought it was fixed. Now, 6 weeks later, his leg seems to have twisted so that the toes face outwards. Vet says he may have had a fracture at some time and that I should just splint his leg. To me the problem seems to come higher than his leg, at his hip. He is getting around and is fine in himself but he is not fully grown and I am worried that he will struggle as he gets bigger. Can anyone help me? Our vet doesn't seem impressed by chickens and I don't want him to be suffering.
