1 day old chick's foot issue

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I read about bumble foot but that seems to be in grown chickens. I looked up crippled foot and it said to tape chick's foot it toes are curled. My chick's toes are different. Should I still try tape/ bandaid to spread out toes?

Hi. The picture won't let me zoom in to clearly see the foot issue. Is the chick having trouble walking? you can try to do a bandaid or vet wrap splint to put the toes into a more normal position. It might work because the chick is so young but I would start as soon as possible to give it a better chance of normalizing. Yes it's different from bumble foot. Bumble foot is more where the bird steps on something and gets a sore infected on the foot. I'm unsure what your chicks issue would be called but maybe someone else knows. I would give the bandaid a try and see how it works out. keep us posted and best of luck.
