    One of my Peachicks has a broken wing! I watched her flapping them and jumping a bit. It just sags while the other flaps up a storm. I picked her up and kind of observed it. It's like she has no strength and can't move it. She still eats and drinks and is merry. She doesn't act sickly or anything. Will this heal on its own?

    Yes it should heal just like human bones. I see pigeons break they're wings a lot and it heal just fine. The same should be expected from a chicken. Normally you want to keep a eye on them but as long as they can get food and water they should heal up nicely.
