    Just saw that one of my 6 weeks old chicks toes are all bend to the outside is there anything i can do? will this effect the way they living, lay egg, or finding its own food once they freerange. Which bring to ask how old before chicks can go free ranging

    who wants to know?
    she will live
    nothing will be affected, so that should be a load off [​IMG]
    we used to have a Comet named Crazy-toe because her toe was, well, crazy! and bent. the dog got her in the attack about 2 weeks ago..i really lived her..alot
    anyway, she'll be fine
    and i would wait a week or two before letting them go just yet

    I have a three year old hen with bent toes. She lives a completely normal free-range life.
