    I dont think this is a huge deal, but I am curious..We have one EE and nine RIR's. The EE has really long toes that sort of shift off to the side. She seems to walk fine, none of them are laying yet..I've never owned an EE, so I dont know if this is normal or not..I will try to get pics, but it's going to take another person to help me catch her..She's quick! Thanks

    I have 3 EE's, none like this, but hardly a large sample. I think it can happen in any breed. I've had a couple with toes pointed in odd directions. As long as they can walk OK I don't worry about it. Could be genetic or a hatching problem, either one, or an injury.
