I am just wanting to make sure this is not a problem. My 1 week old guinea keets have their bottom of their wings sticking out a bit. Feathers just started growing there. Diet is exactly what it should be.

Is this normal growth or do I need to change something? Wrap their wings like ducks getting angel wing?

Hi there, welcome to BYC! :frow

Angel wing is only an issue for ducks as far as I know.

I have had ONE chick and one turkey that had wing feathers come in a little quick like what you are seeing. Both times the birds grew into the feathers before long and showed NO signs of issues.

According to my experience... I would not worry about it... if you KNOW the diet is good. :)

The wings at the bottom are just sticking out so much and I am selling these 2 birds so I just want to make sure this is okay.
