    I have a 8 week old barred rock, Is it too late to splint her toes? first I thought it was just a deformity, but I don't remember seeing it during her first week or two. Also, if it isnt too late what is the best way to do it?

    I had a chick with curled up toes. What someone told me to do was take a thin piece of cardboard, like a Pepsi box, and use little pieces of bandaids to tape her toes to the cardboard. This holds them in place and straightens them out. Your babies issue maybe different as mine was not broken. Just an idea.
