In the Brooder
- Nov 20, 2012
One of my newly hatched chicks is showing signs of what I believe to be slipped tendon, two of its hatchmates have splayed leg which seems to be improving with the band aid hobble treatment. I had this other chick, Pirate (he walks like he has a peg leg bless him) bound in the same way but the symptoms are totally different and he is showing no signs of improvement at all. he holds the leg up and wont put weight on it. he is managing to feed and drink, but obviously I am keeping an eye on this. does anyone have any ideas as to what else I could try next for the little peeper?
