I have a four to five month old quite large mallard duck. Am pretty sure she is a female and have noticed as she has grown, that her wings to not appear to lay flat against the body. She opens her wings, and they are quite large. They look normal, but they don't lay flat against the body. They appear to stick out at an angle. Remarks I have received from people are that they maybe deformed. She flaps them and does everything normal. She is quite large and a somewhat large in size. One feed store told me that it could be her weight pushing them to stick out and not lay flat. I have never seen this before and was wondering if anyone else had seen this and if I should be concerned. She is the best duck. So sweet and caring about the two baby ducks I just purchased. Please advise. Thank you!!!
