One of my baby chicks had curled toes, and I tried the band-aid "boot". A friend held her while I carefully flattened and straightened her toes, and put a thick piece of the sticky part of a waterproof bandaid on the bottom and then the top of her entire foot. I sealed the adhesive pieces btn her toes, and then trimmed the outside to the shape of her foot. She did NOT like it at all! Glad I used waterproof bandaids, b/c she kept stepping in the water dish and shaking her foot like it would help! After 9 days, I removed the boot, and her feet were flat and toes straight! Their bones are still not connected and very soft when they are that young, so it can work! Physical therapy for a baby chicken. I never would have thought that I would do that! You can look up pictures on google but it really is as easy as it sounds. Just have someone to help, and it helps to use tweezers to gently hold the toe straight while you put on the adhesive.
