I have a question for those who raise their chickens for eggs and meat. I had a fairly unsuccessful hatch a week ago. The 1st one that hatched, I was told to leave her in the bator until she dried, which I did. Then she started developing spraddle legs. I did the bandaid thing on her tiny legs for 4 days as suggested on this site. It did help for 1 leg, but the other it didn't, and the bad leg is now facing at 4-5:00 (but not flipping up in the air anymore at least). I only had 2 chicks make it; the 2nd chick I removed from the Bator at 6 hrs. and she's fine (note: everything is a "she" until crows). But I'm torn as to what I should do with the mamed one if anything. I don't want the other one to get lonely, but I am afraid she won't be accepted into the Flock later on. I have no way of knowing if she's in pain as she just make the normal chick Twitter's just like the other chick, although the other chick does seem to pick on her a little, but not a lot (the smaller chick is a day younger). Re homing isn't an option right now. I'm not sure if keeping her is just prolonging the inevitable or if I should put her down. This is the 1st we're experiencing spraddle legs. Our flock are large breeds and they bully each other as it is (even though they have a ton of room to roam) Any wisdom would be appreciated.
