I might have a slipped wing. I'm sure I saw one out in the pen somewhere, just need to see if I can find the bird and if it is still clearly visible.

Let me know if you can find the slipped wing Kathy. If you can it would be awesome.

Can you find a duck with angel wing?

Do you need crooked toes? What else can we think of? How about red leakage in a black?

I went out an looked and now Im wondering if this is an example of slipped wing, or just a weird wing. Might need a judge to verify this! The bottom wing feathers are long and sort of droop, but its not split wing, because there is not a gap. I'll see if I can get a picture and get some other opinions.
(hmmm, is weird-wing a DQ?)

Well I examined that wing very closely and I don't think it qualifies as a disqualification. Smile 
Well, not as a slipped wing anyway.
The wing does not extend out in the normal way. Its as if the tendon or muscle is too short to let it fold out properly. Something I haven't seen before, but I do think this young cockerel will be a cull and probably not suitable to demonstrate an actual SOP type of DQ.

That is fine Kathy. I am sure someone else will have a few more DQ's for us to display for educating the public.
