    Crooked tail, it happens. Not dangerous or anything, but kinda like a cowlick in humans: cant really take it away, but it wont hurt him! [​IMG]

    I had a little GLW chick that did this. I believe it's a slight deformity. Didn't cause any problems, the chick naturally was named "Crooked Tail".
