    I’m taking in a female Cayuga duck with Angel Wing. I’ve been doing some research on how to fix it, but I’m not finding anything consistent. For example, I’ve read that it can’t be fixed when the bird is 16 weeks or older, but I’ve watched videos on how to wrap the wing in proper position, and they’re doing it on adult geese. My duck is less than 16 weeks. If anyone has any experience with Angel Wing and can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. She should be arriving soon, so I’ll post some pictures of her when I get the chance.

    Best suggestion that I can give is give it a try and hope for the best. Good luck. Wrapping may or may not work.

    I've wrapped but it definitely needs to be done before the cartilage isn't soft anymore.
    Best time is right after the flight feather get a bit longer.
