    My chick that just hatched has a wired looking foot. It is kind of turned and curled up. What is wrong with it? She can walk fine, though.

    Sometimes chicks just come out that way lol. i dont have any chickens like that personally but a friend of my brothers does and she is one of their best laying hens [​IMG] ive heard that it could be caused by improper humidity levels during incubation, but im not sure how true that is.

    Heres a pic i found on google from a past post on here. apparently this condition is fairly common and usually isnt a mobility issue for the chicken unless their whole foot is curled and not just the toes...
