This silkie is 5 days old and I just noticed her wing looked like this today.

Is there something I can do for it? She seems to be eating and drinking and running around the brooder with the other two but if there's a way to "fix" it or if it's a bigger issue than I realize, I'd like to try and rectify it.

It's probably congenital cervical scoliosis and torticollis syndrome. It results from iffy genetics and sometimes from nutritional deficiencies. In plain English, her spine is crooked, so the wing juts out.

It might, but don't count heavily on it, be improved but not 100% corrected by giving vitamin E 400iu and melatonin. Give along with a little egg each day for a week and see if there's any improvement.
