    So .... I bought 6 pullet chicks from a feed store for a broody. I didn't look them over closely when I got them and the broody is so protective I haven't handled them until today. The silkie chick got out of the run and I scooped her up to return her and wanted to check out her feet cause I knew threw were supposed to have 5 toes she does but the 5th has two claws and then I noticed her wing looked a funny shape .... She has two claws on each wing ?!!! Is this normal?

    This is a situation where no one is going to be able to respond without seeing a photo.

    The toe thing is easy to figure out. Extra toes and nails aren't uncommon in 5 toed breeds. As for the wings, I agree with azygous. Pictures would help.
