I'm unclear as to what your problem is. Prolapse is not a leg problem - see http://www.extension.org/pages/65423/prolapse-in-poultry-kept-in-small-and-backyard-flocks#.UiKAIH-w...

If you are having leg problems, I'd suggest you check the nutrition of your birds' diet - especially calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D levels.
