Hello! Over a month ago, my friends rescued a duck from being eaten (didn't know they did this?) by other ducks, and asked me to take care of it. I've been doing my best with trying to give it everything they need. The little one is 5 weeks old now, and I had a few questions. First off, I don't know the breed. She looked like a mallard when she was just a plump little nugget, but I'm no expert lol but the main question and reason for my paranoia, today... Do they have angel wing? I've seen posts on here about it, and I just want to catch it early so we can fix it and have her flying when they're older! This is Abaddon, btw!

Welcome to BYC.
Abaddon is a Muscovy.
I do not see any angel wing development currently, but stay on the lookout for feathers pointing outwards rather than running alongside the body.
As an additional note, you should consider getting at least another duck its age as waterfowl are extremely social creatures and should have one of their own regardless of how often you are with the duck.

Thank you so much! I've asked around, and some people have said that since people are with her 24/7, she should be fine, but I've always worried about that, regardless. I'll look around to see if anyone has any ducks their age :)
