    [​IMG] Could someone give me some information on "angel wing" I have a 8 week old duckling feathers are starting to come in and it appears the wings are pointing out to the side slightly. I have to work today and will try to post a pic tonight. I know protein in the diet may be factors, can someone tell the correct amount of protein for a duckling this old and also is there anything I can do if it does develop it to stop progression or even cure? This is my daughters baby it is so tame, I don't believe it thinks it is a duck. [​IMG][​IMG]

    This was my experience, it was just a growth spurt. Her right wing still has a small dip to it, but her left wing is completely normal. I never changed a thing, it was just the feathers from the top of her wing pushing down on the new feathers along the bottom. I don't know why it happened to her and not her brothers.
