    I know I should be posting this is 'Geese' but it takes so long to get a response there and I am worried about ma lil goose [​IMG]
    He is starting to get in his big boy feathers and today I noticed that his left side set of pin/blood feathers(for his flights) are sticking kind of out & up? Could this be the start of Angel Wing?

    My ducks feathers starting coming in just like that, and at first, I worried too. When they grew out though, they were perfectly fine. So I don't think it for sure means angel wing. I would give it a bit and see how they look after the feathers come through. If it still looks weird, repost here. Or wrap the wing.

    ETA: Cute Goose, btw!
