    He is not in pain or anything but when the other duck pecks at it he cries. Should I be concerned?

    He will need to be wrapped and that doesn't always work.

    At that age if you wrap ASAP it should take care of it.

    Thank you! I will wrap it today. About how long do you suggest I leave the wrap on?

    Try for at least 3 days then unwrap if still sticking out wrap again. Usually a week or less if caught early when wing feathers are just growing out.

    Here is another video how to.

    D8270631-3176-4955-99AA-20517D5CA50C.jpeg Thank you all for the help! I tried wrapping a swimsuit material (nylon/spandex) on him but he kept shimmying it off. I think I am going to try the panty hose, but any other suggestions??
