Hi Monarch

Never encountered this myself but have had a quick look in my K Thear book.
She suggests that young with curly toes is due to lack of Vit B2 (riboflavin) in the parents :?

Only thing I could suggest would if you are able to position the feet correctly use match sticks or the like to act as a splint :?

Sarah :)

I think there has been advice about this on here before - [probably from Munty.

I'll do a search.

A lot of chook keepers will tell you to put it down but read this first:

Also have a look at this link, it could be slipped tendon from kicking out of the shell. There is a infant's liquid vit. here called Poly-Vi-Sol that can be give chicks at the rate of two drops daily and it helps with defeciencys. But be sure sure to get a vit. that has either no iron or very little.

Here is the link.

I like the Multi-vit-plus. It sounds like it should do the trick. It would be nice if we had choices like that here. The Vitamin packs are few and far between.
