    I have 5 baby chicks, they are 2 weeks old. I had 1 born with splayed legs. I fixed that with band aids. I have another one with it's feet turned inwards and it's big toe "i would call it" is turned under his foot. I have tried making shoes. It did not work, because it made him trip a lot. It did not straighten his feet. I really need help with this. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.


    Thanks so much BYC

    At 2 weeks old, its probably too late to fix its foot. The only suggestion I would have made is the band-aid bootie, which you've already tried. If it gets around and eats and drinks, then it'll be fine, just a little special :) Good luck.

    Thanks so much. I did try the band aid shoe. But it made her feet go on top of each other. The band aid around the ankles did not work...
