    Hi,

    How can you fix a chicks feet when
    they are curled in? Any way? Cripeld for life?

    Often if you tape their foot flat to another piece of tape or cardboard you can straighten toes. It should take just a few days but if you take it off to soon, they could recurl. If the leg it'self is curled in, that is another problem. A pic can help with the best method to do leg rehab, but generally, trying to "set" the toes or leg in the correct position is the best way to go.
