Can you post a pic so we can confirm? How old is your duck? Angel wing is quite easy to fix if caught early enough by simply wrapping the wing in the proper position so it can correct itsself. There are many videos and sites online that show different ways to wrap wings for this purpose. :)

Her feathers have already matured, I highly doubt you'll be able to correct her problem. You can try, but if she was mine, I'd wait a week or more until the blood in the feathers recedes, then clip them very short. You'll hardly notice a difference.

they’re 7 weeks old do you think that’s too late to correct them? Thank you for the help
