    Quote:Ducklings don't develope angel wing that young. fine for now but I would think about cuting it down when they start to develope feathers in their wings.

    They don't get it at 6 days, but definitely at 4 weeks. Best to avoid it in the first place.

    I feed higher protein to my adult ducks during the show season. About 20% without issues
