    IMG_0830.JPG IMG_0828.JPG Thanks everyone. I taped his toes flat. He's moving around better already. I'll adjust if I need to.

    we have a 5yr old hen that has curly toes and had half of her head bitten off by a raccoon and is still living.

    Will take some updated pictures tomorrow. Working 10+ hour days at work (computer conversion) so I've been getting home late at night. His legs are very strong now but toes still curl quite a bit when I take "shoes" off. I'm going to make something more structured this weekend. I've been trying to retaps his feet at 10 pm when I get home every night.

    :duc:lau:lau:lauAs long as he has his shoes on he can walk quite well. When they're off he trips because of his toes. Maybe he'll just have to always wear

    IMG_0894.JPG IMG_0894.JPG IMG_0907.JPG Ok so here's new pictures. The first is my peachick and a red bourbon poult that I found as a buddy for my lonely pea. As you can see his feet are still very crooked. I have since made really good pipe cleaner shoes and it's keeping his feet much straighter. I just Hope i can keep him that way.
