I have 3 chicks all hatched with curled toes. One of them also had a club foot. I straightened them out and taped them with the tape from bandages. The one with a club food I made a more solid boot with some post card paper then taped it. They have had these on for2 to 3 days and they are 3 to 5 days old. One of them gets around good with the boots and the other two still have a little problems. The one with a club foot walks good but doesn't walk often. I'm also giving them Poly Vi Sol twice a day. Two of them are eating and drinking good the other isn't so well. So I give it a mash about once a day and water often. It will drink from the water bowl but mostly when I put it in front of it. I really don't expect this one to make it. When I give it liquids it has bubbles come out of its mouth when it swallows and acts like it has something stuck for a while afterwards. I suspect a hole or leak between lung and crop. I have to give all my chicks a chance and I do what I can for them. I even give the club foot one therapy to help it get used to walking and standing right. What I need to know is there anything else I can do and hoe long do I leave on the tape. I believe they got this way because I ran out of oyster shell and the hen started laying soft shell eggs. Then she stopped a little while laying at all then these started being laid. Before I got the oyster shell. I know it's not genetic because her first batch came out fine, and her and her roo are fine. They came from fantastic stock. The problem lies in a lack of calcium. Any advice is appreciated.
