    What makes the ducks' wings turn up like that? I've seen that before and somebody told me that humans do it so they won't fly away. Sounds cruel to me but is it true?

    It looks like your girl duck has a severe case of "angel wing". It's a condition that needs to be corrected when they are still a baby. If it isn't corrected early on, it can't be corrected at all. That is what I read here on BYC. It shouldn't affect her quality of life though. She should do fine. Your birds are all beautiful by the way. [​IMG]

    It's angel wing all right.....maby when she molts she will loose those feathers and new ones will grow in. hopefully corrected this time around...when my Rouens molt, they loose all their wing feathers.
