I recently bought a few Muscovies at our local fur and feather. They all began nesting within the first weeks or so of bringing them home. I had one hen hatch out of the first nest and she has grown very strange wings. I have pictures and wondering if anyone could add insite. Also I apologize for any error this is my first post.

I think it's a birth defect. Sorry. I've never seen wings like that. But, it shouldn't hurt unless she has birth defects in her egg producing parts. I've had muscovies for 5 years.

Could be angle wing - gently fold them into the body as they are supposed to be and tape them down with duct tape. Tape just the wing to the top portion of the body, the dorsal side so it can still walk. You will have to cut it off, but this should help the wings form properly. CUT DOWN on the protein they are getting too. That is the #1 cause of angel wing.

They are eating a Duck and Goose Ration. It is 20% crude protien but they are not get very much when all is said done. Between the 10 of them they get a scoop that says "200g" on it once a day
