    I just my cornish rock babies this morning. I've noticed that one has a very stubby back toe on his right foot. He's having trouble keeping his balance because of it. Should I bandage his legs to help him keep his balance and then separate him for a while?

    Thanks, Sonja

    If you think it will help him stand , sure bandage his legs. Unless the others are picking on it I would leave it with the others, less stress, chickens like to be in a flock
