    1) What type of bird , age and weight: Olive egger, 1 week old. About the same weight as her hatch mates, not thinner.
    2) What is the behavior, exactly. Her wings poke out.
    3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? Well, her wings just grew in yesterday...
    4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? Nope.
    5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. Nope.
    6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. The Incubator temps were widely varying. I'm hoping that she is just a frizzle (as the seller said that there was a chance of) but I need to be sure so that I can try to treat this early.
    7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. Starter and water.
    8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Normal (I should know, she popped on my hand during her pictures!)
    9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? Kept an eye on her.
    10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? Cheap as possible.

    12) Describe the housing/bedding in use
    Large cage, metal, next to heat lamp. Pine shavings.

    Can you take some side shots zoomed in on the wings? Especially near the tips where the flight feathers come out.
