Thank you, Miss Lydia. I'll get started with that regimen. I am going to have to find a better way to keep him confined to keep him from using the foot too much - I had him in a small portable pen that's a couple feet tall and none of my ducks have ever gotten out of it, but he missed his ladies so much he made his way out over the side. I may just keep him locked in the run and put his favorite gal in there with him while the others continue roaming.
I'll let you know how it all goes.
Always good to have someone with them. Hopefully he won't wear her out. Appreciate you letting us know how he is doing.
