Species-specific description: Sallam et al. (2022): "Dietary, environmental, and hereditary causes were reported as causative agents of angel wing syndrome in waterfowl. ... This study demonstrated clear evidence for induction of angel wing syndrome, at least partially, with [goose parvovirus] GPV infection in Muscovy duck. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first work to mention a viral cause of angel wing syndrome in waterfowl."

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
