    I have 2 eight week olds that have developed crooked toes. This didn't happen at hatch, I noticed it at about 3 weeks old. It was suggested that I give them poly vi sol (no iron) by mouth for 5 days to see if it is corrected. Has anyone done this, and has it corrected the problem? I'll try anything, I feel bad for them, however they seem to be getting around like all the others, no problem. Thanks for any information.
