    Does anyone know why my baby chicks have curled feet? They just hatched about 32 hours ago.

    It's usally caused by humidity issues during incubation. They are easy to fix at this stage though, you need to tape their toes straight to some card to make shoes, they should fix themselves after a week or so.
