I have 5 Australorps and 3 of them have this same way of "holding" their wings away from their body. I'm just wondering if this is normal for this breed? My other 2 have wings that are tucked alongside the body in the normal way. My other 10 chicks all normal too. They all came from the same breeder and all hatched within 2 days of each other. I have read about "angel wings" deformation in geese which have to be splinted or something to help them grow right. I'm sure hoping this is not the case with these chicks!
