    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?

    They also seem to fix themselves pretty often, but i certainly recommend Nutri-drench.

    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.:)
