    I have a chick with crooked toes that I didn't know you could fix until she was a week old. So at nine days old I started the tape and cardboard splint treatment. I've had them on for a week now and she's improved graitly (she no longer steps on her toe) now she can walk on the balls of her feet. But she still has crooked toes, Should I continue to tape them or is she ok now?

    I would continue treatment until no further progress is noticed.

    Glad it is doing better.
