How do I fix my chicks feet??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a baby chick that hatched early this morning. It wasn't until I put it in the brooder this afternoon that I noticed it could not stand and walk like the others. Its toes aren't curled under, but its sitting on the outside of its feet. They're just turning in under its body. Is this fixable?

This is something odd. I recommend calling a vet, or a chicken care specialist.

What breed ? But something like this is common when the mother chicken doesn't have enough of the right vitamins there are binding methods that help some cases but when it's just the foot it's a little harder vets will help if they deal with chickens. it could be a tendent in the leg or bumble foot I've had some with this issue and others.. Was the chick dropped at any point? If it was just a toe most chickens live normal lives with just a toe like that but the entire foot I'm not entirely sure vet is best option
