    Hi All,
    We got a lovely new Khaki Campbell duck and she got a few feathers caught when she arrived and they are now sticking out and not laying flat. When she extends her wings all looks normal. I’m new to duck (and chicken) ownership so not sure what to do and looking for some advice please. Pics attached.

    Might be worth taking her to an avian vet to make sure nothing is broken as birds hide their pain well as prey animals. She might need it binding up to help it heal right?

  3. Possible angle wing? Can you get ahold of her to see if those feathers are broken?
