Bird?....chicken, turkey, peafowl, guinea, or pheasant???
OK, whatever it is that bird will feel pain. As much as I
do not like pain---the pain encourages the victim of
injury to rest the hurting part. A broken toe needs to be
taped into the shape you want it to be after it heals.
You can check my article for a picture of a "chick shoe"
that is for straightening toes or you can email me so that
I can email this picture.
I had an adult peacock with a broken toe (bent to one
side) I cut a splint from a plastic bottle--a straight
flat piece that I taped to the bottom of the toe.
After a week I removed the splint and his toe bent the
other way. So I taped the splint on again and when I
removed it that peacock's toe was straight and has stayed
that way.
You can email photo of your bird's toe to me if you want
me to look at it. Just click on my name where it is
printed in blue letters
