hey, why is my chick walking like this ????
click to watch video VVVV
Couple of things-first, I would cover the newspaper with paper towels to prevent splay leg-keeps the chicks feet from slipping-which could POSSIBLY be the problem.
However, there are other things that present in this way-do a search on something like "chick walking on hocks" and see what symptoms of what problems fit your situation best.
Good luck to you and hope your bird is OK.
and nope there not on newspaper i just put that over the sofa so i could video him walking
l;ooks like curled toes, somewhere on here they show how to fix it, they take a peice of cardboard cut to the shape of foot and put the chicks foot on it and tape in down a leave it for about a week, but do a search on curled toes and there is alot of info on this site, good lick
ohhh thanks so much!!!!
i'll give it a go tomorrow
Yep, I would start with chicky booties also to straighten out the toes/feet.
take a look at this:
I used chick booties on this little guy and his toes were uncurled in about 3 days. Make sure that you carefully tape the toes in the proper position on the cardboard. I used sport tape and card stock.
maybe some vitamins and protein for strength also.
ok me and my father are going to try it tonight
we will most prob have abit of cardboard under the foot and tape the top part of the foot to the cardboard is this ok ?
