    I have a 10 day old chick who's toes have been fine until today. Overnight they either curled or broke?? It seems to be painful to walk on :-(. Suggestions please?!?[​IMG]

    I would start poultry vitamins in the water, and tape the toes or make chick shoes. Google "treating curled toes in chicks" and look for any links especially one by The Chicken Chick or Poultry Pedia Podiagry.
