    Wow, I've never seen feet that persistantly curved / curled. Hope the better "corrective" shoes work. If it is a boy you may have to call him Forrest.

    Oh and meant to say your daughter is just adorable!

    Lol. Thanks.
    His shoes were off for this picture but I have had tape shoes on him consistently since he was 1 day old. I would redo them every day or two. This is what he has on now. He does look like Forest :). I figure worse case scenario I will just have to make him bigger shoes for life.

    Can I ask how you made these? I just noticed my silkie chick has 1 foot with super curled toes and I don't really want to just tape due to the feathered feet.

    I hatched out some peafowl and taped their toes as they had curled.

    They also had splayed legs so braced them with a band

    They’re great now, here’s a pic
