    She cant walk properly, as her poor little toes are curled up. She's learning to get around though. Sometimes they uncurl and she can stand on that leg. Her appetite is great! Drinking water. I have her separated from the others, inside the house. What causes this?? What can i do??

    It seems to really hurt her when i forcefully uncurl them. But i will definitely try this. Thank you!
