    I just noticed my 2 week old silkie chick has symptoms of curled toe paralysis, and is walking on her ankle. Not sure how long she's been like this, can't imagine I missed it for long but the toes are pretty stiff and frozen in place. I've already started poly -vi sol, and ordered a more complete chick supplement, but should I also try to set the toes in place with a "shoe"? Thought I was using a good starter feed...

    Okay, thanks. It looks like I should try a shoe... hope it's not too late!
