Wonky Toes

Dolly with her SUPER stylish brace
We noticed that Dolly had crooked toes. They weren't bothering her but you can't take a chicken with crooked toes to the fair. After some research, we learned how to make her little "chicken shoes" to fix them. We formed a pipe cleaner to fit her feet then wrapped her toes with medical tape into the correct position. We choose a yellow pipe cleaner because the other chicks would peck at them if they stood out. We will probably keep them on for about a week before we check her toes again. Check back next week for Dolly's update!

  1. It sounds like the Ponseti Method for chickens! Well done girls.
