    Ordered 9 chicks from meyerhatchery about 6-7 weeks ago. Didnt notice until recently that a few of them have crooked toes, just the 2 outer toes. Looked at some pictures from a couple weeks back and noticed they had crooked toes then also. 2 out of the 3 Barred Rocks have this and one Black Australorp. They have no problem getting around and doesnt seem to bother them. Should I give them some vitamin d or let it go. May have had this since birth so may be hereditary. Really not concerned about it because they get around fine and doesnt show signs of pain. Just wondering if it may get worse and eventually cause pain or problems. Thanks for any help. These are my first chickens.
