Well, my one-month-old Blue Swede duckling looks like she's starting to develop angel wing in her left wing. She started growing wing feathers the other day and now they're perhaps 3/4 of an inch long. Her left wing looked a little different this morning but now, just twelve hours later, it's starting to look very distinctively angel wing-ey. It's drooping and starting to point outward. I tried to take a picture for this post but you couldn't really tell what was going on without the perspective of seeing it in person. What can I do to nip this in the bud? I've been feeding them (just two ducklings) 15% protein feed because Storey's Guide suggested 16%-18% at this age and the feed store only had the 15% grower and a 22% grower available. I've also been giving them a poultry vitamin containing niacin in their water and have been taking care to exercise them each day. I need to slow this duck's growth to allow the wing to catch up to its feathers, right? I read somewhere that you're supposed to immediately put them on alfalfa pellets until the condition clears up. I have guinea pig pellets that are alfalfa based -would those do? Would they really be alright on that stuff for, what would it be, a few days? Should I change only the diet of the afflicted ducklling or the diets of both? Should I start binding now or wait to see if a diet change works before I get so drastic? I'd appreciate any advice. This is only my second time raising ducklings and I'm not terribly experienced. They just grow so fast (and I've just witnessed what a difference twelve hours can make) so I thought I should go straight to the forum on this one. I'll have time for research tomorrow evening but I'd like to be able to do something for her until then. Thanks!
