I doubt that the wire bottom is the cause. But when I use
a mini-coop with hardware cloth bottom I always prevent
feet from having contact with wire by covering floor with
paper feed bag but now that paper has been replaced with
plastic weave I use large cat food bags (paper).
Anyhow I see evidence of "twisted tibia". Twisted tibia
is certain to get worse if not given effective treatment.
I use the "night taping" method which I first used on a
two week old pea pullet named Firestone for a tire brand
that had a bad defect in the year that she hatched.
Firestone is an old peahen with NO defect in legs.
You are going to want to know all about "night taping"
but I am about to go to a Church supper so must get
going. But I hope to be back online later tonight.
But while I am gone you can read the other posts on my
forum. The topic of twisted tibia comes up way too often.
And I have just ONE method of treating it.
