    My 2 week old RIR pullet has been favoring one wing after "play fighting". I've watched her and it doesn't happen all the time - but she will flap it like crazy then it will hang from her body a bit...then she cleans under her wing. She's done this twice that I know of. I don't know if it could be an ingrown feather or worse? I'll keep my eye on her. Other that that she is fine. Any ideas? thank you

    I think she is ok - this morning they were out playing and running around and her wing seemed fine - but the other side gave her little trouble - so it is probably 'growing pains'. [​IMG] I won't worry about it.
