    This is my first time raising baby chicks and I'm a little concerned for one so I'm wondering if anyone has seen this before or might know what's wrong. One of my Easter Eggers that is about two weeks old seems to have one wing hanging lower than the other. This is a picture of the wing that is hanging lower. The dark bottom feathers that are visible here are not visible on her other wing. She also seems to be the last of my four chicks to be getting the feathers behind her neck. Other than this visible abnormality with her wing she seems to be fine. She opens her wings and flaps around like the other chicks and she is eating, drinking, and pooping normally as well.
