JG chick with funny feather growth...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I just got two jersey giant chicks (along with other chicks of course!) in the mail yesterday, and I've noticed that they both (one more than the other) have funny wing feather growth...They are REALLY long and don't lay against their body - more of a 45 degree angle out. Also, one of them is missing feathers around her neck/shoulder area. I haven't noticed any picking, and she isn't bleeding and the skin isn't red or anything. Are these normal feathering patterns for a jersey giant? (They don't seem bothered at all by either.) I can post pictures if needed.

Without pictures it's hard to know if it's normal or not. New feathers don't always lay right for a bit. Are these day old chick? Are you talking about feathers on the neck or the chick down?
