    Hello, i have been reading lots of post on sprawl leg on chicks. I recently had a very tough hatch ans one chick resulted in sprawl leg. I applied a bandaid and it has been 24 hours. The chick still hasnt stood upright and lays a lot, but hasnt fallen over in 12 hours or so. I keep a towel there to keep him up a little. Can anyone tell me if this is normal behavior or look right. Id like to make sure i am doing this correct.[​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to BYC - Thankfully, i have no experience with this problem, but i would suggest that you re-post your question on the "emergencies, disease, injuries and cures" forum.

    all the best

    CTKen has given you a good place to post about your chick. You could also do a search for other posts on the subject to see how other members have dealt with this issue.

    Good luck!

    Looks like the chick is sitting back on it's hocks. I'm sorry I don't know what to suggest.
