    I wouldn't call that a split wing. It still has the axial feather (little feather between the primaries and secondaries). I've seen birds with much larger gaps still not get disqualified at poultry shows. Also, it appears that wing feathers are growing in, which means that the small gap between the feathers may be caused by a missing feather.
