5 week old cayuga duckling with bloodied wings - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Keep an eye on the wings of the others, too. If she doesn't start bleeding again you can do that. But I would wrap if the angel wing gets worse. The wrap will have to stay on for 7-10 days.

What is the % protein in the food? There is a table on the forums somewhere I don't know about swimming with the wrap on

UPDATE: The good news is all bleeding has stopped. You can't even tell there was ever a problem, except for the probable angel wing. We will attempt to wrap them today and hope for the best. 

Thank you for all of your advice. This forum has been so full of helpful advice for all of my critters. (chickens, goats, ducks) I'll be an expert in no time! LOL

 

P.S. I forgot to look at the protein % on the feed bag. Will do that later. Is there a % that I should stay under? She's the only one out of 6 with this issue. 

 

Thanks again,

Alison

Great to hear! I found the table and it says 16-18% protein for 2 to 8 week old ducklings. It's in this thread http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/750869/raising-and-caring-for-ducklings#post_10611711
