    I have 4 chicks that are two and a half weeks old. I just noticed a couple days ago that one of the chicks has a bent toe on each foor. The innermost toe.

    It doesnt seem to affect it now. It can perch on my arm/hand just fine.

    Im just curious if this will cause her issues later on?

    They are on organic starter feed and i give them ACV in their water several times a week.

    They are happy, friendly, active chicks otherwise.

    Ok. Yogurt and/or greens? I've only been feeding hem their organic chick starter cause they are not outside yet, but they won't need get with yogurt. Will yogurt have too much calcium for chicks?
