    So I think my ducks wing is broken. If you look at the duck a part of its wing is sticking out. When i pulled the wing out it is the end that is not tucking underneath him. I cannot afford the vet so any help is appreciated

    Have you ruled out angel wing?

    Yes, a picture would be very helpful. It could be angel wing, or also blood feathers coming in that makes the wing too heavy for him/her to hold up properly. If it is truly broken, there are ways to wrap the wing so that it can heal up. Just hard to help you without seeing the actual problem. ;)
