    Is taping them really work or am I wasting my time trying. As i have a serama chick with curled toes. I taped them but if it wont work Id rather not waste the time trying.

    I suppose you could try taping; I've never done it myself, so I don't exactly have any input on that. [​IMG] But I can tell you that I also own a chook with curled toes, and as long as you aren't planning on showing the bird and it isn't inhibited from normal life, everything should be fine. [​IMG] My Hamburg girl is perfectly happy! She can roost, scratch, ect. with no difficulty whatsoever.

    Avalon has had the curled toes since she hatched, so pretty sure it's a similar situation. [​IMG] Is your baby getting around alright, and are you planning to show her?
