Angel Wing

1 Comment

“Angel wing also known as slipped wing, crooked wing, and drooped wing is a syndrome that affects aquatic birds, primarily geese and ducks, in which the last joint of the wing is twisted with the wing feathers pointing out laterally, instead of lying against the body.”

Unfortunately we noticed Rosa’s wing was looking rather strange on Monday. We spoke with Jamie on how to correct this, and he mentioned taping the affected wing for 10 days. So last night we did it. I really hope it trains it to lay the right way.. It can look really ugly.. Especially since it is only one wing affected.

Don’t worry, it doesn’t cause her any pain at all, and it is caused by a high protein feed. This makes their feathers grow too fast.

You can really notice it before the taping. I’ll have to update on the progress when we remove the tape. Keep your fingers crossed that it works itself out!

No one wants Tilly to be made fun of in the barn yard!

Check out her swimming skills!

They turned 5 weeks old on Monday

Aren’t they beautiful?!

Tilly knows she’s gorgeous.

They are digging their new kiddie pool. I placed it right in front of the sun-room so we can watch them frolic around.
