    The only thing I can think of is dry pox...but he doesn't look nearly as bad as most cases that I've seen so I doubt that's it.

    [Edit] I give up diagnosing anything - I can own (and probably do) all the chicken books on the planet but it's no comparison to people who have had chickens forever. :)

    That is called a "side sprig." It happens.
    In show chickens, it is a DQ. In BYC, it is just an oddity.
