New babcy chick missing feathers on one wing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a baby chick who's probably about a week old who has full feathers on one wing but none on the other.  What would cause this?  It's the only one in a group of 5 chicks that seems to have this problem.

Update: it's a been weeks and the chick seems to be growing all her feathers in now.  Slow start but looks like she might have a normal wing eventually.
