    The band-aid method really seems to be helping. How long do I leave it on??

    About a week, give or take, or until the legs are normal. Change the bandage as the chick grows or as it gets dirty.

    I think it varies depending on the chick. I had one that just needed two days for curled toes and spraddle legs.
