    I had a check that was born July 11 that had this condition from what I could tell. I used the band aid trick and after a week it seemed to be walking perfectly and did find for about a week. Now today I came home and it is falling all over and its leg looks worse that before. If I try the band aid at this point it can't even stand up. I don't want to loose this baby chick. It is the first ever that we hatched and my kids are in love but I also don't want to make it suffer or live life susceptible to harm because it is crippled. Any suggestions?
