I believe that the right tibia is twisted causing lower leg to point outward. It is interesting that another chick with twisted tibia was just posted on this forum before yours but am glad that yours is younger since this can make a difference in the outcome of the treatment. But I have hope even for the first one. My "night taping" method started when I had a two week old peachick that suddenly developed twisted tibia after having treatments for other orthopedic problems. Five nights
of this treatment were all that she needed before growing into a healthy peahen. I cut a small piece of sponge to tape to hock joint to prevent rubbing and bruising. Then I brought lower legs together and taped then from hock down to ankle. I removed tape and sponge in morning so she could eat and drink in daytime. The action of leg muscles pulling against the tape is what powered the treatment but the result did seem like a miracle.
If you have questions just ask
