I have had this happen to me before and well to my chicks but anyways take some pipe cleaners and make them the size of the chicks toes all the way to the hock and tape them on. This is a really cheap and effective way. The chick shoes will need to stay in place for some time and will also need to be resized often as chicks feet grow fast and remember not to use too sticky tape as the shoes will be hard to remove
