    One of my ickle 2 week old Exchequer leghorns has deformed toes they look like the main long toe is broken on each foot there bent over but you actually would nt notice if you just watched it walk its walking around normally???

    Just curious as to what may of happened??? they were incubated is nice bright eyed and healthy xx

    It was an incubation problem.We have them rarely but they do fine...one is so bad her toes are bent back and up but she still roosts on her perch every night. If you get more than an occasional toe then you need to look at what your doing wrong and try to fix it..we have had 3 in about 500 so I don't worry.
