Please help...chick wing questions

One of our little RIR chicks has a wing that is drooping.  Chick seems healthy, running around like the others, eating and drinking well and the other wing is fine.  We noticed this as feathering in started. Our thought is that the little wing was perhaps damaged during handling before we brought her home.  I can't feel any obvious deformity in the very teeny bone structure but I also don't have a clue what I would be feeling for.  hu.gif

Any thoughts as to if we should tape/splint/just leave it alone?  Our chicks are 5 days old now.

Thanks

just leave it alone. it will probably heal naturally. also, wait a couple more days to see if anything happens. hope this helps

Thank you....she is still hopping and peeping about like the others.  Her wing does not seem as "droopy" although it still does not look like the other one.
