    I just hatched some poults the other day that have straddle feet. I tryed the band aid trick and it works for one. The one is walking around fine, but the other one is still having trouble walking. The left leg is fine but the right one isn't so well, when it walks it doesn't spread its toes, it like steps on its toes, i don't know how to fix this problem. If anyone could help me get its toes right so it could walk right I would greatly appreciate it thank you

    Try taping the toes with regular scotch tape. Spread the toes and tape them in place both top and bottom. Leave it on for at least a day. I've had it work on a EE chick just last month. Good luck
