    I used the advice of this website:
    http://sites.google.com/a/larsencreek.com/chicken-orthopedics/leg-braces

    to attempt to fix what i think is a slipped tendon in my two week(ish) old poult (can't put much pressure on the leg, joint is swollen and warm, looks "flat" compared to the normal leg)

    Nothing really happened when I used the stretching method to attempt to fix the tendon. Am I supposed to be able to see it return to its normal position? Perhaps I'm not doing it correctly. It didn't appear to work and I really thought I stretched it as far as I could without causing further injury...

    Can anyone who has done this successfully share their experience?

    thanks!

    I'll try the stretch again in the morning. I hope it works this time.
