I think these are some sort of injuries, but I dont know how she could have gotten injured. Clean pine bedding, very standard brooder and feed.

I am worried they are painful to her. What do I do? I have plenty of standard medical stuff on hand, antibiotics, vet spray, bandages and bleed stop powder etc if I need any of that. Also epsom salt if it requires a soak?

Thank you all, I was nervous they were some sort of damaged/broken feather. I'm a duck guy and am new to chicks. Chick is healthy and happy and it's clutchmates are all finishing zipping now
