    one of my 4week old rouen ducklings just started developing angel wing. last night it looked a little off but by this morning i was sure thats what it is. i am wrapping it tonight and was wondering if its better to wrap just the wing itself or wrap the wing the to the body? any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Both. The wing needs to be wrapped to straighten out the wrist and then the whole thing needs to be secured to the body. Since angelwing is probably a genetic condition, you may not want to use this bird as breed stock in the future.

    Good luck.
