I'm almost positive that this is the leg that was stuck up into the air cell, so I'm wondering if that has something to do with it? Is there anything that I can do to straighten it out? It's turned under him and he can't walk without falling over! I tried to get a good picture, but he kept moving all around.
That's awesome! I had a good feeling on this one!!
And like Kathy said, I think shoes should fix it?
This is for chickens, but works the same with ducks. Just spread their little webs and tape the toes in place for a day or two.
Masking tape, medical tape, whatever you have that will still peel off fairly easily afterward. Its common for ones that take a little longer to hatch.
