    What do you mean by "going out"? Having a better idea of what you perceive as the problem will better help us to be able to address your concern.

    Crooked toes are usually due to a genetic problem or nutrient deficiencies.

    Newspaper is slippery to little chick feet. The concern with that is slipping and their little legs going out like Bambi's did on the ice. I use it but I put papertowel over it until I know they are strong. About 4-6 weeks old. Yours are about a month old so you should be ok. When my little one get scratching around and the papertowel ends up in a wad or shredded then I quit. Now they scratch around on the newspaper and shred it. Good luck with the little cuties.
