    Hello! I'm a first timer and one of my chicks wings is completely different than the rest. They're only a week and a half old, but if she's injured I want to know. Other than that I thought maybe this means she's a rooster? They are our bred Dominique chicks. Thanks for your help!![​IMG]

    The wing is not a sign that the chick is a rooster. To me, it looks like the feathers are slightly out of order. As the wing feathers grow, they should lay right eventually (unless it is a split wing/slipped wing).
