    Just got a one year old Cayuga duck with angel wing on both sides. Any way to fix it? Or is she too old?

    Unfortunately, she is too old to fix it. :/ Angel wing can only be successfully fixed when they are very young, before the wing cartilage turns to bone. That happens after their very first flight feathers come in at around two months old or so.
