    Could be that or could be this chunky little one's weight is
    pushing it down. To be on the safe side I would use vet
    wrap in a strip about 1 inch wide x about 6 inches long with
    one end cut for ties at the end. Secure the legs together
    As high as you can get it using a figure eight sequence and
    tie. I just did this with 2 blue quaker babys and left it
    on for 2 full weeks. They learned to walk like a penguin
    before it was over. Thank goodness they are okay.

    Wishing you and baby well :-)

    If you aren't handfeeding yet I certainly would so the
    parents won't peck at the wrapping and/or baby.
