    I have a silkie chick that hatched one week ago. A few days ago I noticed his toes are facing in and his smallest toes and not spread out [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    This is probably caused by a faulty gene or a birth defect.

    Is there anything I can do to treat it?

    Not sure, the best thing to do would be to consult a vet or an expert. If this does not effect the chick too much, you may be good to go.
