    [​IMG] Just curious....

    Is it normal for a Dorking roo to carry his wings relaxed?
    I never see him with his wings tight against his body. They don't drag but they're relaxed enough so the tips hang slightly below his body.

    No, he is healthy as can be.

    It just seems to be his normal for him so I wasn't sure if it might be a breed thing or just him. None of the other chickens do it.

    CAN YOU GET A PIC OF HIM DOING THIS? It would help to determine what he is doing.Our rooster does this when he gets warm, hes just a big laid back guy lets the wing hang down then he flops down, but then hes normal as pie running around the yard.
