Chick with a crooked toe

I just noticed that one of my 9 week old BA chicks has a crooked middle toe. It's pretty bad, but she seems to be walking around fine, and it doesn't appear to bother her, but I'm afraid as she grows bigger it may become a problem and throw her off balance.

Is this something I should be concerned about, or am I just overly cautious? I've read that crooked toes can sometimes be caused by a vitamin dificiency. Would it be worth it to get her a supplement?

I had a chick with a curled up foot as well. I just kept an eye on it as she grew, she is now 5 months old and runs around on her crooked toes just fine! Sits on the roost fine as well, does everything the other birds do.
