    I have a columbian winedott chick that is 4 weeks old and 2 of its toes are curbed out and not straight. Will this hurt the chick later on in life, or is this normal? Is there a way to get them straight? Thanks , new at chickens

    Crooked toes should be straightened if at all possible because it can lead to problems later in life. I am including a link to a chicken podiatry page that has a ton of great info. About a third of the way down the page is an explanation for chick shoes. That's what you need to do. Good luck.

    Oh, and [​IMG] Glad you found us.
