Dead fiedlfare chick

Dead fiedlfare chick

Here’s the chick I unsuccessfully tried to help. Note how straight the body turned the second it died, in contrast with the other chick. This is suprising and quite unusual as most dead birds have their legs bend after they die. I wonder if this could be a clue to ID the leg problem the chick had. Credit: Yalakom
