    He was the runt when I got them, is there something wrong with him? I notice his wings go way past the end of his body and none if the other chickens are like that.

    I have a little guy who has the same thing. He was the smallest chick, and he took some nursing to get him to thrive. He has this short little body and long, long wings. He's only 7 weeks old, so I don't know how he's going to turn out. [​IMG]
