Well, thank you to those who responded with such great information. However, I found the little guy deceased in the brooder this morning. My husband and I agree he probably wasn't meant to make it out of the egg and had something else going on that we couldn't have known about or fixed. Of course my reaction is to say I won't assist them in hatching "ever again!" I said...but the reality is I will if I think it will save the chicks life. So, my crooked/curly toed little guy went on to Chicken Heaven... So long little guy.
