    I have a little White Chantecler that seems to have a slipped tendon.
    Has anyone tried to put a tendon back?

    I tried it this morning. Can't tell if it stayed back though. I can feel the tendon along the side of the leg. I gently straightened the leg out then tried to "roll" it over onto the back of the joint where it should be. A couple times it just rolled back. Took about four tries to get it to stay a bit

    I caused a skin tear though. The chick has been sitting on the joint too much and has weakened the tissue.

    Anyone have experience with this?
