This is a rather common occurrence with incubated eggs and has happened to us a few times. In each case, the curled toes on our birds have been corrected by following this procedure. Place the bird's foot on a small piece of surgical tape, flattening out the toes. (Surgical tape won't stick to the bird's skin.) Then place another piece of tape over the top. This should keep the toes flat and in place, and in a day, or two or three, the toes should be just fine. Of course, the tape may come off, what with all the running around chicks do, and will need to replaced. But it does work. Good luck!
