Wing sticking out?...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've noticed that one of my chickens' wings is sticking out slightly - it's been like this for a few days now, and I can't figure out why. She doesn't seem to be in any discomfort, and she can flap it ok, a few feathers on the outside of the wing seem a bit ruffled, but the inner ones seem to be fine. Has anyone come across this before? Is it normal?! Here are a few (not very good) pics...

You can't actually see it very well on the pics, but it's very noticeable when she's wandering about.

Is it anything to worry about?!

I agree with Francesca 88, she is hot. We've had chickens for 3 summers now and this year is the first time I've noticed one of our girls doing it. I was a bit concerned about her until I realised why!

Ahhhh, thanks. That puts my mind at rest.

Thinking about it, she has done it before, a few weeks ago when it was hot but that was both wings and only lasted for a few hours.
