    My pullets that I ordered came a few minutes ago. The Speckled Sussex (Looks to be around 10 weeks) has a crooked toe. I don't mind the way it looks, but will she be in pain? Or is it just one of those things?

    One of those things. Not a big deal. Could be incubator related or genetic. At any rate I wouldn't use her eggs for hatching.

    It's just one of those things. Two of my hens have that. Your chicken will let you know if she's in pain.
