drooping wings

Hello, I have several varieties of chickens, very free range walking around on the farm and our nursery with a coffee shop. Some of the chickens have recently started drooping their wings. Their appetite and movement does not seem to be any different to before and their droppings are normal. I cannot find anything on this anywhere. Is it something I should worry about?

    drooping wings can be a sign of ill health but if yours are otherwise fit then i suspect they are just trying to cool down.
    older hens also seem to do this as they age
     if they do start showing other symptoms then they will need to be checked out by a vet 
    hope this helps
