I was given three chicks from the staff at Orschelns because they were all very weak and had something wrong with their legs. I run a rescue and they know this so they thought maybe I could save them. So now I have three chicks that are about 4-5 days old and are all suffering from leg injuries. I have posted pictures below of these guys. There is a Buff Orpington, Hamburg, and a Cuckoo Maran. I got them yesterday evening. The Buff Orpington is will eat and drink if I move her to her bowls. I believe she is suffering from splayed legs. Fortunately only one leg seems to be affected. It is twisting and she barely bends it. She seems pretty alert though. I am not sure if she can really get over to her food and water that well though. Through the reading I have done I understand some of the treatments for this but I want to confirm that this is what she is suffering from. I am confused as to the different symptoms of a slipped or torn achilles tendon and splayed legs. Can a slipped achilles tendon cause splay legs? The Hamburg is still pretty lethargic and I can get her to drink by manually dipping her beak into the water but I have not been able to get her to eat the chick crumbles. She sleeps a lot and is the one I am most worried about currently. I know I need to get her to eat some. I put "Poultry Nutri-Drench" into their water this morning. I am not sure if this has enough nutrients and vitamins for her or not. There are instructions on the bottle for syringe feeding but I was unsure if syringe feeding chick was a good idea or not. Should I be making some sort of food mix that she can eat instead of the crumbles? I believe she is also suffering from splayed legs. Has anyone tried to treat this? If so, what treatment did you use? I know hobbles and leg stents and chick seats are an option but I am looking for some ideas on how to make theses things. The Maran is able to hop around pretty well and can eat and drink but is still sleeping a lot. She is unlike the other two and actually holds her leg up kind of at a twisted angle with her toes curled. Could this be a slipped or torn achilles tendon as well? How do I tell? If so, how is that treated? Thanks again for any advice! I am willing to do anything to save these little girls! There is a link to a video as well. I can take more if needed.
