This German roller weaning age chick fails to grip with its back toe on the right leg. Standing or perching it will not open up the back claw. This is often commonly called "slip claw".
The left leg is normal but the right back toe is frozen forward.
To fix this problem, I taped the back toe in proper position with paper tape. I will change the tape weekly and each time mold it more in a semi-circular normal position.
