    This chick was hatched on Monday/Tuesday and I just noticed that he/she has a bent toe. He seems to run well enough with the other chicks but will it be a problem later on?

    Is this one of the cases where it could be fixed with a splint or "shoe"?

    Your chick will be fine. I have one hen in my that has crooked toes and she can run, fight, and chase bugs as good as any of my other chickens.
