  • Is this angel wing? I noticed the other day my duck's wing looked kind of ruffled and this afternoon I went out there and it really looks like angel wing to me. When Bugs (angel wing duck) is swimming it looks really bad, but when she is on land it just looks like a ruffled feather. What should I do? I have six Mallards and Bugs is the only one with the bad wing. It's her right one and she's about 6-7 weeks old.

It is the early stages of angel wing. There are threads on dietary changes and wrapping to correct the problem. If you get right on it, you should be able to correct the condition. Good luck.

Another question. They're kind of wild. They know I bring food and accept my presence around them but they don't come running towards me every time they see me (unless they are hungry). Will the wrap stay on her? And I wonder if I'll be able to do it because she'll probably struggle a lot.And will I have to separate her away from the rest?
