    two of my guineas, one two days old and one nearly three weeks have curled toes. can I fix them now or is it too late?
    how do you fix it?
    and if it is too late how will that effect them in their life?

    Any advice would be great.

    The sooner you tape them into the correct position the better...

    and you need to do it so that they can't get the stints off.

    I tried it with a salmon faverolle and an ameraucana last year... they keep knocking them off and are living with curled toes.

    what do you use to stick them in place?
    are your chicks with the curled toes having any problems?
