Anybody have any ideas on how to fix splayed leg on a baby chick? we are using small rubber bands and with a small piece of straw in between, but it doesn't seem to be bringing in her legs enough. any other ideas?

When using this method she seems to be fumbling around. Eventually just laying where she fell. Should I let her do this. I’ve been picking her up and putting her upright.
You may need to prop it between a couple rolled up wash clothes. Moving around too much will prolong the healing.
You really should post a photo for injuries such as these.:)
