We just brought the 6wk old chicks outside to the chicken run (2 jersey giants, 2 welsummers, 2 speckle sussexs and 2 light brahmas).
That is when I noticed out of the 8 chicks both our welsummer's have 1 toe that looks broken. Couldn't tell while they were all in the brooder. All the other chicks toes look fine. Is this from confinement in the brooder or could it have happened upon shipment? Chicks born 7/9/12 & received them via us mail on 7/11/12.
Should I be concerned? At this moment they don't seem to be aware but just worried about potential picking on by other chicks.
