    I am just worried the other chicks will peck, and then they will develop that nasty habbit. Will she be ok or should I separate them? Thanks!

    Last year with my chicks one of them had a crooked toe. I did not know at the time that this happens and is not a big deal. My husband made a splint for it out of cardboard and taped it on with freezer tape. The other chicks never bothered it (30 of them). We changed it out after it got dirty from the poop. She was just fine and lived a happy life. No problems.

    I think yours will be okay. Just monitor them for a little bit.
