Its been eating and drinking and its become pretty active so maybe nothing to worry about... has anyone else seen this before?

Sheesh odd,poor peep. I have only seen a duck with like this permanently flipped out wing. Not a chicken. Hmm hope the poor things wings didn't get torn. Does it seem distressed if you hold it(long does it fight you in pain?)

Thinking out loud,wonder if during incubation it was laying on its wings wrong&sticky? Maybe after a few days they will heal&return to upright position. Or you could try wrapping it(like you would swaddle a newborn almost, maybe two days of that can fix it?
Sorry girl.😒

now watch that wax seal your incubater is getting too hot if it starts melting off. I actually mark all my eggs in bater with crayons SO I can avoid dangerous temp spikes&wish I had a patent on it cause don't know anyone else who has chicken crayons that does this!).😘

Idea will probably be on shark tank next week. Can't even get to the court house for property taxes,like I can fly to shark tank for two days to tape a show. Pff. Can't wait 8years to help save chickens...secrets out now.
Night folks.

Oh I forgot to say, I had another surprise chick hatch in my Eco 40. It was an olive egg that I tossed in on a whim. Wasn't able to candle since the shell was so dark and I forgot when its hatch date was. Well, apparently the answer was yesterday because I found it in my Eco 40 when I heard it peeping in there. It was never in lockdown, was turned the whole time, and I never raised humidity. It hatched out fine. That's two this year that've done that. I think they're tougher than we give them credit for.

Amazingly it's back to normal. After some food and rest they seem to be back in place. Oddest thing I've ever seen..
