    well considering angel wing happens do to the amounts of protein in the birds diet, and the fact this happened over night, I'm gonna say broken wing.

    Know a good avian vet? That wing is definitely broken. angel wing usually occurs when they are young and just feathering out. I wish i knew what to tell you, you might be able to wrap it in some way. You might go ahead and do a search on it and see what you come up with. sorry.

    I don't know any vets in our area. But I would wrap the wing around the body, for about 10 days. Then take it of and see what she looks like. I'm no vet but Ive seen it done with a goose.
