    I hatched this silkie baby on New Years Eve. He/she is a little odd looking and uncoordinated, but I think that just makes me love the little one even more! He/she was born with curled toes but I fixed that with little homemade shoes that straightened the toes out in just a day or so. This baby seems healthy. Eats, drinks, runs around....just a bit unstable at times. His/her wings are now coming in very strangely. Anyone ever seen this before and know what is wrong?? Thanks!

    I thought it was frizzle at first, but now I don't. Hopefully someone will know what's going on [​IMG]

    Angel wings?

    Not sure but if it has frizzle genes, it could be a frizzle.

    I purchased the egg that he was hatched from, so I guess that is a possibility. Do frizzles have wings like that?? I know none of my other silkie babies have those wings! [​IMG] Unfortuately, this was the only egg that hatched, so I have none from that batch I purchased to compare him/her to.

    we had a BO chick whose wings came really weird like that but she turned out ok, a little smaller than the rest but all else was fine.
