Hi! I have a chicken that has one of her feet that she is favoring. One of the toes is curling up. Can anyone tell me what that may be?

My wife is the poultry person of the family. She believes the curly toe(s) is a symptom of a vitamin deficiency at the time the egg was either laid or hatched... she couldn't remember. There's not much you can do.
