    Today I noticed one of my chicken's claws. I am fairly new to chickens so I don't know what to do about it. I tried researching it but nothing came up. Please take a look at the picture and let me know if you know what I should do. Thank you!![​IMG]

    My chicken has the same thing, but it's very severe. it's a deformation in chicken toes. Does she have any on the other foot? Is she active? Does she walk funny? Do you ever see her scratch, or does she use her head? Does she jump up on things? How old is she? if she only has one curved toe and she gets along okay, and doesn't seem to be in pain or picked on, then she'll be like a normal hen.
