    The Seventh chick has foot problems. I put some tape on the feet to help straighten them out. Am I doing the right thing and is there anything else I can do? Here's a picture:

    Also I have a Question about the third chick. Do you think it has a crest (the poof on top of its head)??? Here's a better picture:

    What Color do you think the 5th chick looks like? I think it looks sort of lavender or blue... Here's a picture:

    And I got the 7th chick's right foot to be normal but the left one only got worse. Here's a picture of it:

    It does look like he might have a bit of a poof ... hard to tell though, isn't it? Very cute chicks! I love the "mask" on the first one!

    Quote:I used a thin piece of cardboard (actually from a toilet paper roll), and taped to that. 48 hours later ... all fixed up! No further problems! Good luck!
