Hello Zadiel,

Your chick's curled feet are due to lack of humidity in the incubator. This can be corrected, and the sooner you can do it, the better. If you have any surgical tape, this will work better, but masking tape or scotch tape will also work. Cut two small pieces of tape for one foot. Place one piece of tape underneath the foot and spread out the toes as best you can into their natural shape. Then place another piece of tape on top. You may need to trim around the tape a little to make it more streamlined. Then repeat on the other side. This will be easier if you have another person helping you, as chicks can be wiggly, and you certainly don't want to drop it! It may get food under the tape and the tape may come off, so be prepared to repeat the process as necessary. Your chick's feet should be good as new in a couple of days.

Hope everything goes well! Keep us posted!
