    I think one of my chickens might have injured toes. They curve to the side. Does this look normal?

    My very first hatch I had one with curled toes... she's a great hen now.. she roosts scratches doesn't affect her.. when the hatch if you notice that you can fix them with a bandaid to keep them straight till the grow..within a week a chick will double in size.. so a week with a bandaid would been all it would have took... but she fine a great hen
