    Hey everyone,

    One of my chicks has a broken leg. I'm new-er at this so I'm looking for any help on this one! If it is possible to make a splint or something. She has some use of it but not her toes. She makes it along ok, but I was hoping to help her out!

    P.S. Sorry the video is upside down, I'm still learning how to use my new phone!

    For the first time in ages I am using the lap top tonight -so it was easy to turn around to watch your chick... It looks to me that the hock looks swollen - could the joint be dislocated rather than the leg broken?? A splint could help- but making sure the bone is in alignment is important.
