    I have a 2 week old rhode island red and everytime we get her out she is fine for awhile but then she acts like she injured her wing, it is the same wing everytime. A minute later she acts like it is fine, what's up?

    How does she hold her wing when it looks injured?

    What's the temperature there? Sometimes chickens hold their wings out to help cool off

    The temperature is at 85ish degrees,

    We have 4 other chickens, all of the same age, 2 of which of the are the same breed and they are not doing that, it is only the one wing, the same wing everytime
