Duck broken leg

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.
