crooked toes

You can use pipe cleaner to make a form to straighten their toes, then use tape to swaddle the splint to the bottom of their toes. for diagrams on this.

There's several varieties of crooked toes, each with their own causes - genetic, too low of temperature in the incubator/brooder, malnutrition, etc. If she's had this since hatching, that leads down one set of variables to consider. If this is new at 3 weeks, that's generally either nutrition or poor surface issues.
