    There is definitely something wrong here :( She has 2 feathers pointing forward. Well, pointy hard things where there shouldn't be. Also the other wing feathers aren't normal either. I'm attaching pic's of her and a normal chick. Has anyone seen this before?[​IMG][​IMG]

    Thank you. Maybe she'll just be a little different looking.

    Those look like silkie wings. If the chick has black skin, five toes and feathered legs/feet then I'd say that is a partridge silkie chick.
    This link has a picture that looks a lot like your chicks feathers https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/377637/partridge-silkie-chick-pic

    This is a picture of my white silkie chicks wings. I though for sure that I had done something wrong and he was going to be deformed for life!

    This is a buff chick. Doesn't show the wings as well as the white chick.

    Oh really! Well the mother is unknown so that is very possible! It's the only one of 6 from 1 hen. Thanks for your help :)
