these are my 1 week old chicks what are they and the white one has a deformed toe what should I do?
The Black ones look like they Might be Black sex linked and if they are then yours are Females....or it might be a black Cochin (if it has feathers on its feet...i cannot if it does or not in that pic)
But I am not great at breed type at that young of age, so hopefully someone will come along to help you there...
But for your chick will curled toe: you need to un-curl it and then cute the sticky ends off a band-air...put one on bottom of foot and the other on top(so they stick together). Press it in between the toes an make a likke walking shoe for the chick..change it if it gets to soiled or wet .
the black one looks like a cochin, but i don't know about that white one, only time will tell
black cochin on the black and white one, as for the white one.... well.... there are so many white breeds lol. I do see some coloring in the wings, that may help someone id it for you and the advice that was given about correcting the toe is fantastic and many folks do it here. It does work, as long as you do it early enough.
black Cochin for the little black chick.My betty looked just like your little one there when she was a baby!
in regards to the curled toes have a look here, theres some diagrams and ideas you can try
Can't help with the breeds....but I recently fixed a chicks curled toes using the scotch tape shoe method. It worked really well. Only took 2 days for the foot to correct itself. The link posted by Spish has a picture of the scotch tape/band aid method. Just be very gentle with the tiny toes, and carefully straighten them as much as possible before sealing the top piece of tape. Good luck.
thanks everyone for the help
