    You can take a little band-aid and fold it to make a little platform like thing then straighten and tape the feet to them.

    You can also take little pipe cleaners and tape them to each toe to straighten the toes

    It is best if he young because the bones can be re-aligned easier.

    It looks like Seth has you covered. I was Simply wondering if it was crooked toe v. curled toe paralysis. If they are walking around ok, it seems like it's crooked toe. Good luck with your chicken orthopedics! Sue
