Icelandic Chick with curved toes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I know there are a lot of old toe posts floating around in BYC.. but here I am!

I noticed one of my babies (born on April 22) that I brought home May 5th not only has bigger, longer feet than it's siblings but also has a bit of a curved toe thing going on ( it last one hatched by the way).
It doesn't seem to bother Ljómi in the slightest I don't think, but I just thought maybe someone here could take a look at the photos I will provide in this post and tell me if it is something to be concerned about/or if it needs fixing (and maybe how to fix?)/ or what may be causing/caused it.

Haha, I sound like an over protective worrying parent.
Thank you in advance!

That's not bad at all. Allsmost normal and wont cause any discomfort at all. Don't use it for future breeding is all. Curved toes is the first obvious sign of culling from breeding.

Thanks for the reply!
I noticed out of the four I have, this is the only one with the curve! 


At least I now know it isn't exactly anything to worry about, and not to breed Ljómi (even though that's a shame losing that lineage). :)
