I have a duck favoring his leg and the webbed area is scrunched up, he won't open the webb.

I'm no pro, there are many here with 100 time's the experience, so please take this for what it's worth.  I'd say you need to take a closer look at the foot.  We're currently treating a young duck with frostbite on both feet.  Out of 15 ducks and no matter how careful or prepared we thought we were, it comes as a shock to see something like that.  Post a photo and any relevant information that you might have.  Tons of help here if you can provide as much information as possible.

They free range, we have a pond they swim in and we keep it clean. I wonder if he has broke the joint above the webbing
