I don't know if I did this or not but either way it sure ain't right...is there anything I can do??
Incorrect info: deleted.
I am positive that that has been there before, and has worsened with growing. If caught in the first week of like, sometimes splinting the toes with tape and cardboard chick shoes, it can be helped. But it is probably too late now. She will be fine, but you can use some vitamins if you wish. This is common in a lot of chickens. These crooked toes are not due to riboflavin deficiency, but have more to do with heredity and temperature fluctuations during incubation. Riboflavin deficiency can cause curled under toes and walking on hocks.
I have not seen any crooked toes until a few minutes ago! And I've been watching their feet because I've heard the bresse chickens have a lot of leg problems in the US due to inbreeding.
I would guess that it is a genetic or incubation caused defect, and I'm guessing that your thread title should be, "Did I break HIS foot".
Well looks like a pullet to me compared to the hatch mate
I am currently dealing with putting tiny little "shoes' on my baby Silkie "Minion.
You almost certainly have two boys. Commonly, one hatch contains a "dominant" cockerel. He's got the most male development at a young age. The other boys are a little repressed by their very manly hatchmate.
Wow now I wonder if all 4 are cockerels lol
I feel so bad! Would it hurt to TRY to fix it?
