You are welcome. I exist to serve my Creator by helping His
most helpless creatures. The bent under back toe can be
treated by taping on something such as a match stick or
a split soda straw or a pipe cleaner cut to reach from the
middle front toe to the back toe--holding it straight.
this chick has twisted tibia which is a treatable condition
in birds as young as this one.
Tibia is the bone often called "drum stick" by sellers of
fried chicken. Twisted tibia can be mistaken for straddle
Treatment takes around five or seven days and often
brings a complete cure. One leg is wrapped in sponge to
keep the hock joints from pressing eachother as the
lower legs are taped together from ankle up to hock joints.
This is to be for half of each day --twelve hours taped
and twelve hours free of tape. I prefer to do the taping
at night while chick rests so chick can be up in daytime
If you have any questions just ask
