Hi, I'm new to this forum so please forgive a possibly stupid question. I have a new chick that appears to be suffering from a slipped tendon. At least the symptoms fit what I have seen others describe as a slipped tendon on this forum. It's not putting any weight on one leg and the hock appears swollen and a bit inflamed. It just hatched earlier today so it must be something that happened while it hatched. From other posts for this condition, others has mentioned using a "chick chair" to help this condition but I have not been able to find detailed description of one and have not found any pictures either. Can anyone here tell me how I can make one of these and whether it would be helpful in my case. I am happy to provide any additional details that are necessary (just not sure what details are important and what are not). Also, I ran across an article that discussed being able to pop the tendon back into position by squeezing the hock with your thumb and index finger. Has anyone here done this? If so is this something a beginner like me should try or will I risk further injury to the chick? Since the chick has just hatched I am tempted to wait a couple of days before doing anything, but the article stressed the importance of prompt treatment. Any advice on any of this is GREATLY appreciated. BTW - the article I am referring to is at: http://www.peafowl.org/ARTICLES/1/ Thanks in advance!
