Strange wing?

We're on our second round of chicks (current babies are ~10 days old) and we have one whose wings are coming in very differently from all the others. Curious if it's normal and maybe just a different based on breed? They don't seem to sit as tight as the other chicks wings.

Not sure what it is either but I had a chick with a similar thing. She's 2 now and her wings still hang like that so she can't really fly, but otherwise they don't seem to bother her, just looks odd.

I have a chick with this too. The shaft of her wing feathers are missing all the barbs and then they come back further down the shaft.

She had a very rough trip getting to me, she was the only one of 15 chick that survived shipping. I wonder if that affected the growth?

So far she is growing well, I got her some friends from TSC so she wasn't alone. You could see she was younger then those ones but is growing in proportion of those so far (it's been a week)
