    Hi all I have a Barred Rock pullet about 23 weeks old. I noticed the other day that she had a wing drooping. Upon inspection I found nothing wrong with the wing aside from some new feathers coming in under it. She is alert. Very active. Laying regularly. There is no sign of any type of infection. Her poop is normal etc. What I was wondering is this something that happens sometimes as their wings develop? I noticed today both are being carried a little low not so much droopy, but kind of like they are too heavy for her to tuck.

    My BR's droop their wings away from their bodies to cool off.
    Perhaps that's what yours is doing?

    She was just doing that to get cool air under her wings. It's nothing to worry about.
