Amy, After my last post I went to bed but am back now and
looked at the chick's photo. Must try to explain better how
to place the sponge wrap and tape.
Wrap one leg in sponge from ankle up past hock joint.
Bring lower legs (the scale covered shin bones)together so
that they touch and wrap with tape from ankles to hock
This is why I gave warning about drowning hazard.
The chick will be down and struggling.
It is the action of the chick's muscles that pull the
tibia bones straight.
I may be able to find photos in my computer files to
send you but must go offline now. I hope to return
tonight to check on this forum and my emails
