I recently brought home 9 more birds to add to my flock (yipee!) and I noticed when I got them home that some of their tails are droopy.. Otherwise they are acting fine, still eating and drinking normally. As a precaution I always quarentine new birds for a while to observe them before introducing them to the rest of my flock. I'm having trouble finding helpful information about droopy tails with no other signs or symptoms. Could this be atttributed to worms? If so, is the DE I sprinkle in the feed going to take care of this or do I need to get an actual dewormer? I did notice that a few of the birds seem to be slightly smaller than I would expect them to be at 3 months, but most of the birds are breeds I've never had before (GLW, SLW, Light Brahmas, Ameracauna, BR) so maybe I'm just unfamiliar with their growth rates? Two of them are RIRs & they seem to be the same size as my 3 month old RIR/Red star mix birds. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. ETA: I forgot to mention that the woman I got them from had recently clipped their wings.. and although I've never done it myself, I have a feeling she didn't do it correctly. It appears as though she just lifted the wing and cut straight across the longer feathers Could this have an effect on their behavior and possibly cause the droopy tails?
