I just got my two new chicks to add to last years seven - a Salmon Favarelle and a Dominique. My wife noticed that the Favarelle had two toes stuck together on each foot. I looked pretty close last night, and they appear to be a little webbed - one tighter than the other. The chick is walking around fine. Do I try to snip them apart, or just wait and see how it goes?

Thanks!

Leave the toes alone. Sometimes they do not have separation for the fifth toe. They are born that way and that will be just how they are. It is not something to correct.
