Is angel wing a genetic deformity? Can it be passed down?
I believe it is more of a diet issue than a genetic one. But some people would argue that if there is a deformity or any attribute that would be considered a DQ according to SOP, then you should not breed that bird.
From what I´ve read, there´s no totally agreed cause for angel wing. Apparently it could be a problem with protein, carbs, or genetics.
This past breeding season was the first year that I´ve had angel wing. In one family, 3 out of 8 got it. In another family 1 out of 4 got it, and in another family 1 out of 7 got it. All fed the same. I just wrapped them and they´re all fine. I can´t think of any convincing reason why some should be affected and others not.
