    I have this 3 day old Easter Egger and it's wing feathers are sticking out. What does that mean. I'm not worried... It's eating, drinking and acting completely normal. image.jpg I

    It might be angel wing, or most likely just his/her feathers growing in, could you post a side pic?

    Sure. I did a little research, it might just be growing in unevenly

    Agree with above statements, just normal wing feathers growing in, they’ll seem fuller and flatter once more grow in
