    ok , I can't post a picture now, but it like it is just kind of hanging there.(kina droopy) she is still acting fine, do you think it will always be like this, she seems ok...

    ok if it doesn't hurt her then i don't think it's broken,that doesn't mean that it isn't broken just that i don't think that it is. can she move the wing?
    is she eating and drinking fine? does her poop look normal?

    she CAN move but she does not move it. oh, the reason it is hurt is because we tried to slip her under a broody hen, now she is with a more accepting mother hen. and I think she is eating and pooping fine. but not quite sure. ( I mean I'm not in the coop ALL day). do you think we should do something about it? is she going to be ok? will her wing ever go back in to place?

    sorry I'm just worried about her...(sigh)
