Hey Ya’ll. One of our Silkies we brought home ended up with His outside two toes turning under his foot. Being new to this condition we didn’t make a cardboard sandal for him (what we now know would have most likely solved the issue). Today he is around 7 months old and we notice him hoping along and I just wanted to ask if anyone has had any success making a sandal or anything to correct this issue with a chicken being older than a young chick. Please help we want to perform any care to help straighten his foot out.

I have a silkie rooster with the same problem. At 7 months old, the chance of actually fixing the issue is slim, but I have found that they don’t let the foot bother or disturb their daily activities. If he seems to be doing fine, I’d just let him be. Good luck!
