    Hello,
    I have a chick that hatched this past Saturday and has wing feather that seem to be growing outward on only one side. Wondering if this is normal or if there is something wrong with the wing. Thanks for any help!

    My Australorp hen had wings like that when she was a chick, maybe I'll post pictures of it later. Her wings are completely normal now...
