Hi there, my pekin duckling is just under 4 weeks old. I have just recently noticed some red-ish feathers coming out weirdly at the end of his/her left wing. I have read and found it it looks quite like angel wing, but have also read that it could just be blood feathers and could go in a week. But I am very concerned it is angel wing and want to cure it ASAP. Can anyone tell me if it is angel wing or not? And if so what I should do to cure it? Also he or she has a black feather growing on the back as you can see on the photo. I saw this could mean a male but so far it’s voice sounds a lot more on the female side. I love Lewis so much and any replies or comments will be very much appreciated. Thank you :))

Thanks u so much
Very welcome. It covers all the bases. Your bird looks pretty minimal so it won't take much to correct it. I had a call duckling with angel wing, and I just held her a couple hours a night with the tip tucked under, for a couple days, and that did the trick. Also a very minor case.

I ant help you with it’s wing, BUT I can say that duckling is a girl. I know because the boys have orange beers and the girls have pink
