I have a 5 week old Sussex , her feet were fine until a week ago . I noticed one toe looking like it was turning sideways and now it is bent . This morning I see her big toe is also bent and it was not like that yesterday . In the picture you can see where other toes seem to be turning and the one which is definitely bent . Should I try and tape them straight ? Is this something common ? If they don't straighten out with taping will she be in pain ? They were on sand for bedding and now on pine shavings for the last week. She eats and drinks fine .
