Can anything be done about this keet's feet?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a 4 week old keet I got along with 5 other keets from someone on CL. Peepers, besides his feet, is otherwise healthy. Good feathering, good appetite, drinking and poops like the others. But his orthopedic issue is bothering me. He might end up becoming a house Guinea if I can't find a solution to this issue.

 

The issue is: he can't roost. His toes are curled in such a way that he can't "cling" to a bar. He just sort of slides off.

I'm afraid at 4 weeks it's a little late to be able to straighten them out. Taping needs to be done in the first few days after hatch. Have a read of this link, lots of great info ~ https://sites.google.com/a/poultrypedia.com/poultrypedia/poultry-podiatry

I'm sure he will enjoy being a house keet big_smile.png Good luck with him.
