    Hi,

    I have a bunch of chicks that have just started to get some crooked toes and I would really like to get them straightened out I have read a bunch of posts with ideas but was wondering if anyone has pictures either during the process or of the finished product. My chicks are about three weeks old some we hatched and some we purchased and it seems to affect a wide variety so i am guessing it is a nutrition thing we have a good chick starter the same we have always used in years past so I am not sure what the problem is I added vitamins to there water and I also read scrambled eggs and some good fruit also helps I did add a little of the egg and fruit but they may be a little to young to get it yet [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance Nicki

    Thanks so much for a few pictures just curious do most people just let the tape/bandaid fall off on its own I hate the thought of trying to peel the tape off those tiny toes I would think that could easily cause more damage.

    Thanks Nicki
