Crippled toes, Help ! ! !

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

This baby is 21 days old. she had a good leg and toes in the beginning. 

 

but it has gained lot of weight compared to the other chicks of same age and other breeds. 

I tried plastering it every then and there but it comes back to this position.

Feeling confused about treating her.

You can try giving B vitamins to see if that helps, it could be from a Riboflavin (Vitamin B12) deficiency.

Here's a couple of links you might find helpful.
