I had three partridge silkie chicks hatch the night before last...yesterday when I went to place them in the brooder I noticed one chick could not walk. One leg was out to the side and the foot was curled. My hubby looked it up and found a posting regarding slipped tendons in peachicks. He examined the leg and noticed it was swollen and that the flesh in the leg didn't "look happy". He tried to pop the tendon back into place...apparently this is possible as per the article...but that didn't work. I told him to splint the legs and work with it again tonight...we gave it some pain meds (whichever is the non toxic one, he knows, I always get them mixed up) DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ADVICE ON HOW TO FIX THIS?? My hatches have been lousy lately, and I do not want to lose another chick. It looks to be getting around a little better today but it's leg definitely needs to get fixed. Is it just a matter of continuing to try to pop the tendon back into place until it finally goes, or the bird passes? Help!!!!
