    I don't think there is too much you can do except always keep the bird on lots of shavings and or other soft surfaces like sand. Keep an eye on the toenail growth as they will need to be trimmed by you. (and do not hatch any chicks from them)

    Have you tried Brewers yeast? Sometimes it's a vit. def. that can be corrected with brewers yeast added to their food.
