Sounds great .. your a good duck mama and dr. .  :)  Oyster shell won't help with feather regrowth but it will help her to get much needed calcium while she is laying both her and Pepper.  For feather help they need some extra protein. maybe they are still able to find bugs they are not around here this time of year or some dried meal worms for afternoon snack or some good quality dog or cat kibble. These will help with feathers. Protein!!  The vitamins will help too.

OH! Haha I thought because they stopped laying when they molt it was because them growing feathers took all their calcium away! I give them mealworm treats along with oats and raisins.

If it's feathers you'll begin to feel the pins that hold the feathers. Sounds like progress is being made!!

@mr ducks mom   can you post a pic please might help if we can see what it looks like holding him up to see how his legs dangle and then with him standing if he can stand, don't force him to stand though if it's painful he may just have a really bad sprain too and they take quite a while to heal as do bones. can you move the foot at all? there is such a thing as a shoe[ you can make]  to hold the foot at the right angel while healing but if broken depending on where and how long he has been like this it may not work so more details please where the injury is exactly and pics if you can.
