    I have some chicks that their outside toe is startin to turn out or kinda curl. Why is this happening? And can it be cured and prevented in the future.

    you can make a boot take a circle of card board and thae sticky part of a band-aid cut off. Hold her toe right and place the sticky band-aid part over her foot so it holds the toe right it will strighten out...
