    Hi, I have several chickens that have developed inward turning toes on one foot and unable to walk.
    Can anyone please tell me what causes this and how it can be cured. Thanks so much for any help
    you can give to me.

    I have not had this problem...yet. Create a new thread under Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries and Cures. You will get a lot of help. Good luck.

    Sounds like your chickens have "Curly Toe" which is a Riboflavin deficiency. It is seen a lot in pastured poultry. Immediate action needs to be taken! You need to feed your chickens diced raw liver or Brewers yeast sprinkled on their feed. I would recommend feeding Purina Flockraiser after you get your chickens back on their feet. I have a friend who lost some chicks because he was feeding a brand of feed that turned out to be deficient in Riboflavin!
