I do not know how old my baby chick is. I posted earilier and got some really helpful responce, and did a little more reasearch and found out it needs to be done in the first few days before the bones harden. I have had my chicks for a week now. She is an Oprington, approximatly 5-6 inches tall. Weighs less than 3/4 pound. I was going to splint her with my boyfriends help, but he said to leave it alone and I will do more harm than good since she is probably close to three weeks old and her bones have most likely hardened. (We are just guessing on the age). I was able to bend her toes without her being distressed tonight, but I do not know how long before her bones harden and if we can splint without causing her pain. If anyone knows that would be great! Thanks!
