One of my 6-month-old Buff Orpington pullets that I got as a day-old chick last summer is "crooked" and a bit misshapen. She seems healthy and vigorous, but her one shoulder is bigger than the other and sticks out funny, and her head is very small and drawn in and to one side a bit. She runs a little bit crookedly because of this. She doesn't seem to mind and I'm wondering if I should just let her be, or if there is a reason not to keep her around (i.e. will her egg-laying be troublesome for her). Her peers have just started laying pullet eggs. I don't know if she's layed any eggs yet. I only noticed this about 2 months ago -- before that it wasn't obvious, so I don't know if it's a genetic thing, or just an individual dwarfism or if she was attacked by a hawk or something and injured. I think if she'd been attacked I would have noticed other signs (which I didn't). Again, she seems just as perky and happy as the others....I just don't know if this will cause problems later on. Any suggestions? (and thanks everyone here for being so willing to answer random questions like this, and for sharing your own experiences -- I can't tell you how much I appreciate this forum).
