Crooked Toes in 1 day old chick

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I noticed one of my new chicks kept falling down and saw she has a very crooked toe I looked up how to fix it but I am having confidence issues. Can someone just tell me if this looks right and when should I take it off and recheck her foot?

Stay at home mother, and crazy for my chickens. Currently I have a small mixed flock of RIR, Barred Rock, Black Sexlinks. I am sure the breeds are not pure they are feed store left overs that no one else wanted. I also have a small flock of Bantam silkies.

I would try giving some poultry vitamins in the water. That may be all that is necessary since it looks like the foot is curled. The Chicken Chick.com has some good pictures on crooked toe taping, but the vitamins are good.
