    My husband brought home 6 EE mixes and one of our little guy's right foot is splayed out and his left for has curled toes. I used a bandaid to bind his legs for 24 hours then removed it and he seems a little better. He's small but seems healthy otherwise. These are our first ever chicks so I'm a newbie.

    Do I need to bind his/her legs again? Will it help? Is there anything that can be done about his curled toes?

    Thank you for any help you can send my way!I edited this post to include a couple of his after pictures. I didn't get any before pictures.
