In the Brooder
- Apr 23, 2012
We got three Muscovies at a day old, they are now six weeks and their wings are coming in. I believe we have two females and one male (he is much bigger and has thicker legs and bigger feet). The male has one wing that is drooping outward a little and I am concerned about angel wing. When he stands up and flaps his wing it appears to stretch out normally, but when he is walking around it droops. You can see the blood in his wing and I read that sometimes the wings do droop during development because they are heavy with all the blood flowing to them. The two females seem to be a little further along in their wing development, they have visible wing feathers where as the male does not so much. I am attaching a few photos in hopes that someone can offer up advice as to whether his wing is normal, or if we should consider taping it. He has eaten Dumor Poultry Starter Crumble since we got him, it looks like the protein is 20% on that. Thanks for any advice/suggestions.
