    Ok, so I know how to fix spradle leg because that's when the feet are out to the sides and you can just bandaid them back together to the right position. But this is my problem, my chick has both it's feet in front of it's body and it's been more than 24 hours. Normally I'd just cull chicks like this but this one is a special little fella. Little bird looks silly because it's legs just flap up and down in front by it's head. Anyone else been able to fix this or is culling the best option? Thanks.
  2. OH! I bet it is just a cute little thing![​IMG]I wouldn't want tocul it either. I'm sorry I can't help.I don't really know what to do ut good luck iwth it and I hope u can get the thing to live a happy and healthy life.
