    Ok, so basically, while at Tractor Supply, we found a chick with what appeared to be a broken leg. We took her home and after some research, found she had a slipped tendon instead. This has all happened within the last 2 hours.
    We have read on how to fix it, but we can't quite manage to find the right place to apply gentle pressure.
    Her leg looks like the first pictures on this thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/...ped-tendon-broken-leg-chick-arrived-w-bad-leg
    Basically, I'm asking if anybody can give me some more in depth directions on fixing her leg. Like showing a diagram of the leg and then telling which part to apply pressure to. Also, any stints or slings you would recommend for keeping it stable until it heals fully.
    Thanks a ton in advance!!
