    Our chick was born with one leg splayed out. Thanks to lots of help from people on this website, I've now bandaged the legs together, and the chick is working really hard at standing, which is great! But its curling the toes of one foot in order to balance... I've just looked back at posts about chick shoes. The thing I'm most bothered about is making sure you get all the chick's toes in the right position - if I just spread them out flat, will that be about right? I'll be really happy if we can solve the leg problem, but don't want it to have a toe problem instead!
