Duck broken leg

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My ducks were fighting this morning and I may have stepped on its foot breaking them apart or the other duck could have done if. My duck is limping and holing his leg up. He will move and hop on the other one. I hope it will heel on its own. They are about the age of 3 I want him to be ok.

I had a duck break a leg.  It eventually healed on its own, but it took months to do so.  The bird held the leg out straight in front of him, and lounged by the feeders and waterers all day long.  He only walked on the leg twice a day to go into and out of the house. I made sure he had access to resources, and that none of the other birds harassed him.  Eventually he started moving about on the leg more and more.  He always had a bit of a limp afterwards, but that didn't slow him down.
