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...

Sorry I haven't read that site so cannot point you to exactly the right spot (other than the pic). Hopefully it will be informative.
