During the day today I think my 4 week old silver campine bantam (cockerel I think) has somehow got a slipped Achilles’ tendon. His leg is at a very odd angle and he’s walking on that ‘heel’. Doesn’t seem to be causing him any discomfort - he’s seems perfectly normal in all other regards - but he is very much favouring the other leg and it is making him a bit wobbly. On the internet ive found two different guides for trying to get the tendon to pop back into place (tried one method which didn’t work and will shortly try the next) but I wondered if any of the chicken experts around here have come across this and managed to fix it, or had a chicken who grew up and lived with it?
