So according to the link that Silverfox0786 posted, Angel Wing looks like a Hitch Hickers Thumb sticking out from the body at 90* angle. So what is it if the ducks wing is Drooping down???

How old is the mallard, and how often do you see the drooping wings? Male or female?

He/she is about 10 weeks, give or take. We got them at TS back in March, on the 1st and was told they were approx. a week old then???

Don't know if it is male or female yet. I have started seeing it in the last few days, maybe 4 or 5 days now. They are still in a brooder that we have made larger to give them more room and trying to take them out as often as we can. This little mallard has or seems to be the 'Outcast' of the brood. There are 5 mallards and 2 Pekin in that brooder.

Also it has a pom or tuft of feathers on the back of the head and seems to hold her neck in close to her body a lot. Also when she was younger it looked as if her neck was bent or crooked somehow. Not sure why??
