    my name is Michael. I have 4 dogs, 4cats, 15 chickens, 5 geese, 6 ducks. oh and a husband! I have 4 young geese. 10 weeks old. I see on posts here there is something called "angel win" pretty sure my male has on both wings. is there a way to fix it? when he spreads wings there fine. when he closes them they stick out. he is very sweet.

    Welcome Michael. I have heard of angel wing but never seen it. I think it would be best if you post on the "Geese forum."

    Welcome to Backyard Chickens how old is the bird Please? if it is young enough it may be reversed main thought it is due to diet of bread or crackers

    he is 11 weeks. no on diet. he does not get breads or crackers. only grasses and grain. also watermelon and other lettuces. his wings are wrapped now. hopefully that helps. he is loved anyway. I do not eat meat, he is a pet!
