One of my BC Marans chicks has 2 fused toes on each foot. After reading a few posts on here with similar problems I decided it would live a better life if I sliced the web holding it together. I have toe punched before and I don't see much difference, just longer rather than round. I put on neosporin and taped it. The reason was to prevent litter material from getting in the wound and to help straighten the toes. I won't be able to breed it, but it looked pitiful hobbling around on those feet. I hope it works more than hurts. I guess I will know in about a week.
