    I recieved 6 RIR/Wyandotte chicks (5 wks) from a friend and one has curled toes. I've heard that you can't "fix" them after the first wk. It seems to get around ok and it's able to roost. He said that he was going to cull it b/c it wasn't good for show so I took it. Do you think it will be fine when it grows up and becomes a real chicken? I'm worried about it [​IMG]

    If it's not having any issues walking/standing and roosting I would think it will be fine when it gets bigger, she/he will just not have the most attractive feet.
