what causes angel wing and how would I treat it?
I have 2 out of 7 guinea chicks that are starting to show the beginings of angel wing, wings starting to stick out ?
they are such cute little boogers I would like to do all I can for them,
they are getting a medicated high protein game feed.
normally I dont feed medicated to game birds but the feed store wasout of normal starter.
any suggestions?

ok its offical I can not spell today LOL.

I posted this pictureon the contest for guineas also but I want to show you what I am see int in a couple of them. thanks.

Yup, that`s the way they grow on some guineas. The term "angel wing" is applied to waterfowl and it discribes the wing feathers crossing over the back and sticking out on the sides. It`s caused by a deficiency in their diet. Your guineas look great......Pop

I am glad its nothing to worry about, They are beautiful chicks.
Had a lady come today and insisted on buying them all LOL.
She was facinated by the color and I couldnt tell her what color they are as I have no clue.
So its back to Ebay and bidding on Farmer Georges Guineas again. those are the best hatch I have ever gotten from shipped eggs.

Any idea what color they should be when fully mature?
