    I have a 6 day old BO that seems to have a wing problem. Its there, but seems to be 'tucked under' if that makes sense. Here are a few pictures. I tried to show her wings as best as I could. I'm just wondering if this will cause a problem later on. When they become full feathers and all. The last picture shows the whole wing.

    *sorry about the mess, were remodeling our bathroom*

    It tough to tell from the pics. Does it appear one wing is growing and one is not? The one looks much smaller. Am I seeing that right?

    Quote:I'm not sure how to word it..its as if her wing is folded under her wing. You know when you put your thumbs in your arm pit(as if doing the funky chicken dance) that is what her wing looks like. Instead of it being out to her side, along her body, its folded under. It seems to be growing, just not getting her big feathers in like her other wing is.

    Sorry I dont know how else to describe it. [​IMG]
