    Hi, I'm pretty new here. Mainly been lurking to learn as much as I can about these new girls we brought home.[​IMG]

    Anyway, we have a porcelain d'uccle, she is almost 3 weeks old. She eats/drinks/sleeps/plays totally normally, but her wings are growing in really weird. They seem to tuck up under themselves WAY differently than any of the other chicks that we have.

    I can pull them out and see that her feathers are coming in, but they seem much smaller than the other chicks (she is the only d'uccle I have).

    Does anyone know what is going on with her wings? Is there something I can do to correct this, or help them grow more "normally"?

    Looks like this bird was a frizzle.

    I'm wondering how it looked full grown.
