It is kind of sticking down and back. Perhaps alittle outward. He does move it some.You know what I did. I felt along the back bone and where the hip bone was on the good side I compared to the bad side. the bad side was farther away from the back bone and perhaps posterior. So I held onto the thigh bone by the body and pulled out and pushed up/forward. There was a palpable crepitus. After that the leg seemed to be more normally placed. Then later I found the little fu*cker with a string from the plastic on the bottom of the box wrapped around his bad leg and it was pulled out again. So I put it back in so that the hip bones seemed equidistant to the backbone though the leg was still not quite right as after the first replacement. I think its dislocating. He probably needs a splint to hold it in place till it heals as the other little chicks run over him all the time knocking him around. Or what?
