    My four month old O shamo chicken has one foot bent at a weird angle. He dosent seem to be exhibiting any noticeable signs of pain, but he walks around less than the others, and is slightly slower than the others when running for a treat. Is there anything wrong with his feet, or am I needlessly worrying? (The black one. The bend is very slight.)

    I think I see what you're talking about, but I don't think it is much to worry about. If anything, it is probably just a mild leg deformity, likely present from hatch and only more apparent now that he is maturing.
