Ping was admitted to our hospital in 2009 as a young duckling afflicted with a physical growth deformity colloquially known as “Angel Wing.” Angel Wing is a condition that impacts young ducks and geese when they are growing and typically occurs in populations that have been fed unhealthy foods (ie: bread) by people. While ducks and geese love bread, it is not nutritionally complete and these animals will often eat it to the exclusion of healthy foods. These birds wings will typically grow at a very rapid rate faster than the body can support. This causes the wings to rotate outwards. Unfortunately, birds with angel wing are rendered permanently flightless.
