    as far as i know yes it will work if there is spraddle legs. Is there sufficient grip for the chicken to prevent this or could it be something else making the foot do this?

    no spraddle legs, 2 of it`s toes curve to side, the chicken walks/runs perfectly fine and is growing like a weed, this is not affecting it at all. I just want to be sure it stays ok for when it`s full grown, it`s a black orp and as we all know, they grow large. It`s feet are huge, so I have plenty of space to work with. It`s only on one foot, the other is fine.
    If anyone can point me to the link/area that covers how to do this procedure, I`d appreciate it. thank

    it didn`t have it when it was born, I just noticed it the other day, so I`m not quite sure when it started. I only know that it didn`t start out that way.
