This is a 3 day old Silkie chick who walks as though it has a slipped tendon in the left leg but it also has this sore on its hock. I’ve already watched just about every You Tube video about how to straighten the leg and snap the tendon in place securing it with gauze and a straw. I built it a “chick chair” which it is in all day except for the “physical therapy” sessions I’m doing every 2 hours. I’ve given it the liquid chicken vitamins plus some vitamin B Complex which I read is helpful with chicken leg injuries. I diluted a super small amount of aspirin in water and fed her some in a dropper since she does seem to be in pain and is chirping ALOT. I’ve never done this before and would like some advice or success stories. What else could I do?
