One of my 8wk old chicks has what looks like it could be a dislocated leg this morning, poor thing it's hobbling around with the leg not looking good, off to the side. Can't find any info in the Chicken health handbook about this in particular, the feed store told me to "just cull it". I've called SO many clinics and can't find anybody to help my poor baby chicken. Don't know what happened but I feel like it's my fault cause the brooder I made of plywood, the plywood started bending and there was a corner at the top of a 3ft. side that had bent away, the only thing I can think of is that maybe the chick flew up there & got it's leg stuck in that area and pulled itself free. I feel SO bad, it must have been my fault, what else could have made this happen overnight? Who do you all use in this area? I need to find someone to help my little chick asap --- Edited to add: Gosh, I think I've called all the vets in the area. At least one was nice enough to suggest maybe it's a "slipped tendon"?? Anyone know anything about that?? ---- Sunday: Edited to add... The vet was wonderful with my baby on Thursday. He's very compassionate & knowledgeable on chicks & said that was one of the worst cases of twisted leg or whatever he called it (frankly I didn't hear much of what he was saying because it was not good). He did say the chick was beautiful, and he was sad to say options were not available. Said he might adapt by walking on his foot sideways but that wouldn't be good either cause it would just make his leg go further and further out. He also did say these things just crop up generations later or something like that and I know the breeder I hatched him from is very well respected and would not sell chicks known to be born deformed. I asked if he could euthanize him humanely, he gave me as much time with the baby as I needed and then chickie went to the rainbow bridge He just charged me for the office visit, not even the euth. Class act, and my vet forever now.
