    I have a brand new baby Blue Copper Maran I just hatched yesterday. Problem is on her left foot the middle toe appears to be bent/twisted... What can I do to help her and/or what will happen if I just leave it and let her grow up with a bent toe? S/he is healthy and strong otherwise...

    You use bandaides and make a shoe with them. Make sure the toe is straight when you attach the bandaides. Othewise, it probably won't hurt the chick, it will just have a crooked toe.
