    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Sorry to hear your chick is having problems. I'm not sure what you mean by foot carries across the bodie? The mishapen toe could be crooked toe and a result from genetics or incubation issues. Post in the emergencies section though for more expert advice. Give as much detail as you can and pics are always useful for other members to help you. Here is the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    Good luck with your chick I hope it's well soon for you :frow
