    Today I just noticed this crooked or broken toe on my 8 week old chick. He doesn't seem to be limping or particularly distraught, but I'm just wondering what I should do. Any advice would be helpful.

    If he's getting around alright, leave it? I've got a rooster who broke his inner toe and walks fine (even though it looks SUPER awful)

    I have a chick whose toe looks just like that. If she isn't in any pain I would leave it. That's what I did and my chick has grown up just fine. [​IMG]
