Toes Fused Together.

Recommended Posts

This dove has fledged today and it has two toes attached together with the middle webbing skin.I've never seen this happen before and was wondering if it was caused while the chick was in the egg or if it was damaged later on and never healed properly.

Has anyone ever seen anything like this before?

Cheers for that I haven't bought in any new blood for a while.Looks like I'll be getting some unrelated stock to balance them out before even worse deformations pop up.

Birds don't usualy get deformaties when inbreeding to much,the eggs usualy just don't hatch as fertility suffers first.Have you had egg numbers go down the last few yyears mate?.

No still good numbers of eggs laid and being raised to fledging. The sibling of this one is not showing any signs of anything wrong that's why I first thought it was due to an issue in the egg.
