    ok, i know there's info somewhere in this forum on how to treat splayed legs, but i can't find it in a reasonable time (which is short, with two small kids!)
    i've got a baby chick--about 1 week old--whose legs are splayed--i just noticed today. i know hobbles are used, and have heard of using bandaids but i can't find the specific info. so if you have a link or can tell me yourself, that would be super-helpful!
