I just took in this young mallard who was initially picked up by a friend of mine as a seemingly orphaned hatchling. The duck stayed with my friend until yesterday when she dropped the duck with me. My guess is he/she is about 6-8 weeks old now. Immediately i noticed this duck has wings that droop and drag all the time and the feathers seem flouncy and are not repelling water. The wings do move, and he/she occasionally stretches them out for a few flaps. The duck spends a lot of time grooming and picking its feathers and as a result of not repelling water, it seems, and consequently his feathers are shabby. Could something be inherently wrong with this duck or is this a normal part of maturing? Is this an early sign of angel wing? Or could this just be a case of malnutrition? I only have experience with khaki campbells so i am not sure if wild mallards could be this different. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
