Wonky tail?

Recommended Posts

One of our new chickens seems to spend most of her time with her tail bent to the right. Is this likely to be a sign of anything wrong? She does straighten out sometimes, though. I was wondering whether it was just her egg-laying bits getting sorted out (she's yet to lay, but her comb is a lot bigger and redder than it was just last Wednesday when she arrived).

:) Same here, one of mine does that but she's really healthy & lays well. Perhaps it's like a person who tends to stand with their head on one side, just a habit really?

Of course, keep an eye out if the tail stays down (as opposed to just wonky :lol: ) or if she seems unwell.
