    One of my chicks is pecking at her wing and pulling it forward very hard and I'm worried she going to hurt herself! What do I do?

    She is likely preening herself. That is normal.

    Thanks!, It just seems more than ruff than normal and I've never had chicks so I'm concerned

    If one wing is dragging along all the time that would not be normal.

    is there anything I can do? She was like grabbing it and running around. She didn't anymore but it looks a little beat up
