Droopy Wing?

    Just wondering if anyone had any ideas; one of my runners (about 20 weeks old) has a droopy wing. She can tuck it up but is unable to hold it close in to her. She doesn't seem to in any pain and is quite happy to open it up and flap it.

    I've felt the wing and cannot feel anything untoward so not sure what to do about it?

    Hmm. Sounds like she's too old for it to be new blood feathers coming in, which make the wing heavy and sometimes causes them to droop their wings for awhile. She should already have her full wing feathers in. How long has she been doing it? Can you post a pic?
