    At that age I would doubt there would be much for you to do to help. If the chicken is getting about ok then not too big a worry, seen lots of chickens with funky feet.

    thanks. He is an arancana/americana. he has got around pretty good, jumping, scratching, etc. but noticed in the last week sitting more.
    I was thinking it wouldn't hurt to try to straight them out. I just don't know how to go about it.

    I have a partridge Rock rooster that had two crooked toes on one foot and another on the other foot. He is faster and more steady than some of my other chickens the same age (11.5 wks). He will be fine [​IMG]
