    Uno gets so upset whenever I take him away from Flora(momma) and Flora seems to be upset too so we've decided to leave him with her for now. I'm wondering if any brace or hobble will help now or is it too late? he hops around very well and eats, drinks, poops just like the other chicks. I am thinking he will just be my special chicken...more to love!

    Thoughts or advice?

    I would try to use some vet wrap strips to bring his legs together some, and make him a shoe for his left foot. He still looks pretty young. The Chicken Chick has some good pictures of these treatments. Good luck.
