    Can you post a pic? What are you feeding them? I've heard it can come from poor diet, but I had a batch last year that did that around the same age (was feeding good quality chick grower) and then out grew it a couple of weeks later. It was strange how the feet went crooked from one day to the next and then straightened back out again just as fast. [​IMG]

    Can you get a picture of their feet? Did you hatch these or buy these?
