    Hello,
    This is probably nothing to worry about but I have a chick that hatched this past Saturday. It's left wing feathers seem to be growing a bit outward, the right wing seems normal. Just wondering if anyone has any experience in seeing this and if it is abnormal or not.
    Thank you so much.

    Give it some time and watch it.


    Things usually begin to equalize eventually.

    I had one whose wings grew too quickly for the rest of it... and it eventully passed.

    Thanks for letting me know that this has happened before to chicks. Here is another photo, excuse the poop near his head.
