hi everyone
im a newbie to hatching out chicks. i got 3 little ones and one of them has pretty severe curled toes. its like she is walking on the tops of her feet and not the bottoms. i thought that maybe they would straighten out on their own but they are not. they are not worse but not better. she seems to get around fine and not in any pain. she is just a bit slower than the other two. they are 3 weeks old now. is there anything i can do for this little one to try and help her out?
thanks
danna

That's what I prefer for poultry vitamins. All you need is 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water. Curled toes are usually a B2 (Riboflavin) deficiency. The breeders weren't on the appropriate nutrition from where the chicks came from, or there is a deficiency in the chick feed. This is why I don't complain too much about paying for top quality feed.
