    I got this pullet from a friend and I didn't notice her foot till a couple of days later. Her toes are twisted to one side. She walks fine. Is this a concern? Will she be ok?

    Nothing to worry about. She hatched that way and should get around just fine. I even have a guinea like that. No problems. :cool:

    I've had a few over the years that had similar problems. It doesn't affect their appetite or their laying so I wouldn't worry about it.

    We had one given to us with a bad foot. We massaged her foot a couple of times a day for a few days and she's perfect! You'd never know she had a foot issue!
