I have a young Cockoo Marans that appears to have a sort of "Angel Wing" like in ducks.... It has about 5 feathers around the shoulder area that are seriously growing wrong... they turn straight up! What can I do about this?

Well, I've never heard of it in that area. I guess I would try to treat it like angel wing and bind them down. If you can figure out how to tape them gently to the actual wing (not the body) for just 4-5 days and see if it works. Let us know and good luck.

chickensioux, thanks for the idea. They are twisted, though
I don't know what I am going to do... maybe they will come in normal once it gets in it's adult feathers....!?
