My ducks wing seems to stick out, only on one side. Is this normal, or should i do something about it.

Also my ducks poo has been dark and smelly, and very runny and I don’t know how to help it. I have been using Purina duck pellets, and they have access to clean water.

This looks like normal wing feather growing in, for now. It can be a bit heavy and awkward if it’s a duckling, but should be fine. If it gets significantly worse once the feathers grow in there’s a chance it’s angel wing, but it doesn’t really look like it at this point.

Welcome to BYC.

It looks like she *might* have very early Angel Wing going on, but a few more pictures might be good. Try comparing the wing to the other ducks. If it is AW, you'll need to bandage her wing to correct the issue. Refer to this for more info,

Regarding the poop. When did she start doing this? Have you fed her any treats, if so, what? What is her setup like? What's the temperature in her pen? Is she acting normal?

How is your duck doing, OP? My 4 month old duck started pooping rancid and that same color just now. She spooked her self so hard she burst out of her temporary coop (their one is undergoing much needed repair so they are inside in their old brooder aka xxL storage bin with chicken wire on top) She pooped all over my mud room (guess that's why its the MUD room lol) anyways I hope your baby is doing better!
