    I know this chick is only a few days old, but do his wing feathers look strange to anyone else? They are different from the other chicks new wing feathers. These look flared or curved. Its a bantam, thats all i know and that the other's wings look normal for chicks. Is it ok? Its the smallest chick but the others aren't pecking it. The feathers almost look as if they are wet, but they are completely dry. Maybe im just seeing things, i dont know...

    How cute!!! I would say frizzle too. But I am really not an expert, so maybe take that thought with a grain of salt. [​IMG]
