Chicks with clubbed feet

Chicks hatching with "clubbed" feet (foot in a fist). Hatched under a hen. Any thoughts on why anybody? Does not seem to be righting itself. Otherwise appear healthy.

More likely to be curled toes. Can be dietary related on breeding stock, incorrect incubation temperature. You can make little splints from medical tape. Look up online, lots of little tips.
