    Hey everyone [​IMG]

    I have a young baby goose that is just getting it's wing feathers in. Both wing tips are starting to twist and point outwards. I know there's a name and treatment for it but I can't remember it. [​IMG]

    Can you help me out with it? [​IMG]

    Hah I just learned this becuase mine was the same way, they said its called Anglewing and you can fold the wing in its normal position and wrap it with tape around the bend joint for about a week and it will fix it, I just took the tape off mine today and it worked like a charm.

    Yes wraping the wing with tape in the right position works and if you catch it at an early stage it can be fixed in less than a week, one of my geese had it and I wrapped her wing and in 3 days she was fixed!
