We have a Jersey Giant cockerel, who is an absolute sweetheart. I wasn't planning on keeping any of the JG roos because have a 4 lbs EE hen and she'd become a pancake under such a big guy. But, this little guy is such a sweetheart. But, I still have my concerns... When we got him (2 days old) his middle toe was bloody and was severed at the tip. He healed up great and now has all three toes the same length, but he doesn't mind. At about 2 weeks old, the inside toe adjacent to the broke toe started bending 90 degrees (away from the middle toe). We thought it was the crooked toes like we saw on here and thought we'd boot his little foot. That toe will NOT bend straight. Trying to bend it out is like trying to bend our own knees forward. So, I started thinking that maybe it got broke too when the middle toe got broke and it just healed wrong. I have read that it can be genetic when their toes do that, but would this be genetic if it started at 2 or so weeks of age AND it is only one toe (coincidentally adjacent to the broken toe)? The reason I ask is because if we keep him, I don't want him passing on nasty genes. If it is not genetic, I don't care that he was a toe stub with a bent toe. It doesn't seem to bother him. Also, will this prevent him from being able to mount the girls? Is it really a concern having a JG roo with a smaller hen (among a bunch of other hens)? THANKS!!!
