Baby chick with a bent toe?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My first chick that hatched has a bent toe but it doesn't seem to be broken?

While the chick is still young you can try to straighten it out. Doing it as soon as possible will be easiest. Check out this link ~ https://sites.google.com/a/poultrypedia.com/poultrypedia/poultry-podiatry

Good luck with your chick.

Even if you can't fix it, don't fret. I tried to fix my chickens curled toes when she was a few days old, but nothing would stay on long enough to work. hmm.png
Today she still has all 3 toes curled on one foot, but it doesn't slow her down at all. The sooner you try to fix it, the better. If you wait until it's too old, it won't work.
