I have a chick with a slipped tendon. She was shipped Monday and it was like that when I picked her up on Tuesday. The hock is mildly swollen and she hobbles around holding it up, not walking on the hock, but she does rest on it. I tried to slip it back according to advice found here, and while I can feel it move, it did not stay in place. I read that it may take more than one try over several days, but I don't want to hurt her, especially if there is little to no chance it will improve. She is on medicated chick starter, Poly-vi-sol and I have been hand feeding her baby bird food. She is perky and does eat and drink on her own. I am a "try all avenues first" person, and the thought of culling my first pet chick is horrifying to me, but I have to do what is best for her. So my question is: should I have hope and try to ease the tendon into place for a few days or not? Is there hope for recovery and a good life for her? Thanks.
