Description: Curled toe paralysis, typical of a riboflavin deficiency in a young chicken. This results from damage to the myelin sheath of the sciatic nerves. Such chickens cannot move about easily and walk about on their hocks. The curled toes are sometimes under the body or to the side as in this picture.
