    the only chick that hatched from my incubator has curled toe paralysis,
    & wants nothing to do with eating to drinking.
    & now he has cardboard shoes on to try to fix the paralysis.

    Awww...poor thing. Make sure you tap your finger in the feed...and make little clucking noises, like a momma hen wold do. Shiny marbles in the water will entice it to peck/drink. I hope it makes it. Good luck.

    Sounds good! Don't worry too much if he doesn't eat much his first two days, his yolk sac can last 3 days. Keep that finger tapping up and he'll start to cry for you if he can't see you!
