    She's eating, drinking, active, and her stool looks normal but her feathers look ruffled.

    No where Nebraska
    Yes she is just molting into her adult feathers. They go through an awkward stage while in between their chick fluff and feathers
     
  3. She looks perfectly fine! Some chicks feather in a little "different" than others, but it doesn't necessarily mean there's something wrong. Pretty little girl you've got there. [​IMG]
