    I hope I posted this in the right section....I also posted in emergency section. Three of our Rouen babies(6 weeks old) have Angel Wing. So after reading up on treatment we tried the pantyhose method last night. This morning we found that one had slipped the pantyhose off and we can't find it in the brooder & I haven't checked to see if they buried it. What should we do. Was thinking of dosing them all with olive oil to help the passage. Oh what to do??? We weren't thinking that they might eat it. I don't know where my head was at.........he I feel really bad. hit Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    check to see if they burried it, I imagine that would be a bit hard for them to get down easily, at least without choking or having some hanging out of their mouth still.

    None of them are acting any stranger than usual Lone Star. I dug up the brooder with a hand trowel and checked in & around the water dish....nothing. It's not hanging out of anyone beak and I checked all there crops & I can't feel anything????? What the heck is wrong with my head????[​IMG]

    Well now don't I feel silly:[​IMG]...but really really relieved!!! I found the pantyhose......on the duck that I thought slipped it .......just was under his feathers. It's dark brown to hopefully to prevent the only one that didn't have the pantyhose on from pecking @ the others. So I removed all the pantyhose for now.....maybe the vet wrap would be better.(it's purple)lol I think perhaps I'm in dire need of more sleep??? Thank You very much to those that responded. It helped me to think & stop panic mode.
