    Hi
    I have 2 female pekin ducklings that are 2 weeks old. One of them has wings that are perfectly formed, the other does not. She has one wing that is normal, and the other one is almost completely bare and is bent at an odd angle. It doesn't fold in like the other, it just lies uncurled on the side of the body. I'm not sure if its angle wing because it doesn't stick out of the body. Is there something wrong with her?
    Thanks!

    At two weeks old- they wont be actually feathers in yet...Give it another week or two and you should start to see the feathers coming through...Thats the time that you will be able to tell how the wing is looking- and if the little one is developing angel wing. Maybe it has has some damage done to it if it is bald now- or just an issue that was caused during incubation. Give it a little more time and update us with how it is looking- But in the meantime- A photo may help to get a response from someone who has encountered a similar issue.
