Wierd Poult Wing

One of our poults has a wierd wing. We noticed when it's feathers started to grow out, the bottom ones stuck out just a bit. I could tuck them back in, but they would eventually poke back out again.

Now that it's getting bigger, the feathers really stick out.

It seems to be able to fly as well as the other one, but I'm wondering if it's going to present a problem for the turkey as it gets bigger?

Any ideas why the wing grew out this way?

Maybe it will make it easier for me to trim it's wings when it matures and decides to fly over to bug our neighbors.




We are feeding them Nature Wise game bird feed by Nutrena. If this condition isn't going to hurt him/her, then I'm tempted to let it alone.

I'm concerned about taping it as my two poults are fussing each other right now over who's going to be the boss bird. I'm thinking it would put him/her in an unfair position.

That is unless I can tape just the one wing? If anyone can talk me through it it would be most appreciated.

I wish they would decide who's calling the shots as it's tough to watch them fight it out.
They are pets so I'm hoping this isn't going to go on forever.
