    Can someone guide me on how to set up the bandaid hobble for a peep with splayed leg?

    Thank you! We put the bandaid on, she's really distressed about it right now.[​IMG]

    I stopped in at our local feedstore for chicken feed...they have peeps for sale, and the lady working there told me there was one in the back that wasn't doing well. She said that the owner wasn't going to do anything to help the peep, and one of the part-time guys that works there was talking about taking it, possibly to kill it. So I figured she has just as good a chance as any, here with us. At least if she doesn't make it, she will know what its like to be loved.

    We took our little peep to the vet ... she is on antibiotics and anti-inflammatories ... and we made her a little "chick chair" out of a sponge.. she loves it! We named her Lacey...
