I had 4 silkies in my first hatch that hatched yesterday and two of them have straddle leg. One is tiny and I tried the band-aid trick but it made things worst. I did the distance with the pad of the band-aid. For a very small silkie should it be closer. This one also holds her wings to the side like they are useless. She just flops around the brooder. The other one has slight straddle leg but I wanted to know first if before messing with the chick if I should put the band-aid closer. I also hate putting a band-aid on those feathers but I guess whatever has to be done has to be done.
