Hen holding wing at odd angle...

    I was out with my flock and noticed my hen, Suey, was holding her wing out form her body. This happened a few days ago, and it hasn't folded back to her body yet. Do you think it could be broken? It's only one wing. I know hens sometimes hold wings out from their body when they are hot, but it's not hot now.

    I haven't noticed anything else wrong with her.

    Thanks, everyone.

    She may have injured herself, have you gently checked the wing?
