    I just popped home on my lunch break...And saw a gorgeous baby...But its leg looked wrong. I am pretty sure the tendon has slipped at the hock. There is no movement in the joint either. I want to try to slip it back into place when I get home in 3 hours.

    Does anyone have some experience or advise on how I should go about it???

    I took him out of the bator when I got home..But I think its too late now. The leg isnt as supple anymore and a cant see the tendon properly to try to move it. Poor little tike. I have never had to cull before...Before I think I might have to in this case. [​IMG]
