    My 4-5 week old BR pullet has two bent toes - the outside ones on each foot. They're not real bad, but they definitely go out to the side differently than my others. She's actually my friendliest one and she always runs over to the door when I go to check on them. Doesn't seem to have any problems getting around and doesn't seem to be in pain.

    Is it too late to make a band-aid boot? Should I just let her be?

    I can't answer the medical treatment question but I have a black australorp roo that at 4 weeks his 2 toes started to curl. Now he is 13 weeks and doesn't seem to bother him a bit. Jumps and runs with the rest of them. John
