Hello all, i have a problem. I hatched my first peachick yesterday and its walking on the side of its feet and its toes are curled under. Is there anything i can do or will this take care of it self once the chick gets a little stronger?
Thanks
Jack

It will most likely be perminant but the peachick should do ok. It may have minor problems walking but not enugh to completely imobolize it.

Hello hybrid, actually someone instructed me on how to fix this. They sent me to the Upa website and there is a section on orthpedics there. It instructed me to make it shoes out of pipe cleaners and tape it to its feet. Then tape the legs together about 1 1/2 inches apart to correct the legs. I did this for 12 hours and you would never know there was anything wrong with the chick. Its toes are perfect.
Thanks for the reply though
