    Hey gang,

    Today we had our 5 one month old Silver Laced Wyandotte girls out to walk around the front porch and noticed that one of them had an odd toe. We have not noticed this before but it could have been this way for awhile...or she could have injured it.

    It kind of looks like it is disjointed, but she walks on and uses it just fine. When you pick her up and she bends in at the joint, she bend it to the side a bit.

    The question is, it this something we should be worried about? Should we do something about it like splinting it? (I saw that you can do that for babies, but our are a month along) I need some input from the community.

    Thanks in advance from the Colorado Dodson's
