Hello all,
I have a 4 day old Jubilee Orpington chick with possible slipped tendon. I have seen/dealt with splay leg but this is my first slipped tendon. Any advice in how to slip back into place and stabilize and any success stories would be great for encouragement also :)

I've treated a few with slipped tendon, and the only time I did it successfully was when I put the chick in a sling for a few days. You could try to make something like this:

So should the leg be wrapped in a straight position or slightly bent in a more natural position?
