Crooked toes

post #1 of 4

Is there any thing I can do about this? I ordered two pullets from a hatchery for my breeding program but I'm concerned maybe this will be passed down to her chicks?

No. I do not think there is much you can do to correct this. Toe injuries are fairly common, but if it is genetic it could be passed on to the offspring.

If both toes are crooked it's most likely genetic. I have one girl with super crooked toes but she hatched from an egg that's mother was very old. I wouldn't breed her if that's the case. Their toes don't usually start to go wonky until their a few weeks old in all the cases I've seen.
