    My 7 week old Pekin has angel wing. I bought some white vet wrap today so I can hopefully fix her up. Do I wrap both wings to her body or just the angel wing? Do I keep her out of water while she's wrapped?

    Thanks bunches,
    Michelle

    You'd have to wrap both wings down to her body in the correct position and keep her wrapped up most of the day. It's kind of like training your hair to go into a new part, lol, you just have to get them trained back into the position they need to be in. You can let her swim for a bit each day in order to preen a little, but her baths should be short and she then can be dried (toweled off or you can use a hair dryer on low/ low heat). Then she should be wrapped up again right away. I also sent you a PM about possibly testing a special wrap i've designed for angel wing.
