Is there something wrong with her wings?

    I have a 4 day old light brahma pullet who tucks in her wings further than any of my other pullets. I got two light brahma pullets, and they look pretty much the same, except for their wings.

    They are the same type of bird, so I wasn't sure why her wings looked so different. Is she okay, and I am just overreacting, or do I need to fix something?

    Thanks for any help.

    Looks like a developmental deformity. Can you get some Poultry Nutri Drench for them?

    Zoey's wings are no longer stubby, and she jumps and eats as much as everyone else! She still isn't as developed as much as my other light brahma, however she is still growing :)
