I tried the band aid method to try to "fix" my chickens leg. She/he has only one leg splayed out. She is 3 days old. Earlier today I put the band aid on the chicks legs. I checked on her about 20 minutes later and she was face down in the saucer of water and the band aid was off her legs. I thought for sure she drowned. But she was still breathing and moving a little bit so it must have just happened. Thank God! Anyway, I still have some eggs in the bator and she was soaked. I didnt know whether she would survive or not. But I dried her off the best I could, and I put her in the Bator for about an hour and a half. She was fine, and dried off good. I put her back in the brooder with the other little chicks. But I didn't put the band aid back on her. Maybe I am putting the band aid on wrong. Someone sent me pictures and I tried to do it the way it showed. But I am afraid to try it again for fear she might end up in the water saucer again. Thank god it was only a small saucer of water. Thats what probably saved her. So does anyone have any idea what I might have done wrong with the "band-aid" method. Did I maybe put it on too tight or something?
