    I have 2 that are close to 3 weeks old and look like they might have something going on with their wings...

    I have never seen any of ours with it, Their wing feathers grow pretty fast so the look out of place until they grow into them. Do you have a covered brooder? they will be out of it soon.

    The brooder is partially covered, but I am prepared for them to start the escape shenanigans shortly, so they will either get moved to the brooder pen or I will use a large piece of screen to cover the brooder better. There are about 6 that are 2-3 weeks old and only 2 of them have these extra long feathers on the tip on the wings that point at a funny angle from the rest...
