Hi Natasha,

We've had a couple of straddle leg chicks and tied their legs together with embroidery thread (not red). It worked perfectly for one, but not the other. This hen is now one and a half years old and scoots around on her belly to get wherever she wants to go. Her heart beats harder than the other birds and I don't think she will live a full life-span. But apparently her problem went beyond the "normal" straddle leg. I'm sorry your bird's leg hasn't corrected yet. You may want to give it more time, though.
