    Ok so I got three roo's today. They are about 20 weeks old. One of them has a crooked toe, which does not effect his walking or anything like that, it just kind of bothers me. Would a splint on it straighten it out, or is it to late for that?

    Give him poly vi sol with no iron. About 3 or 4 drops will work of that. Try the split/shoe. Crooked toes is either genetic or a vitamin deficiency. POly vi sol gives him the vitamins. I would try the poly vi sol first to see if its vitimin deficiency. If its not that, then its genetic and then I wouldnt breed him.
