Is there something wrong with this guy's leg? He has been favoring it and I'm not sure what is wrong. I've been researching but can't decide so thought maybe you could help me.

Wondering if this might be slipped tendon.

 

There are a few things I'd like to share, to help...

 

First, congratulations on the ducklings!

 

Please feel free to post over on the Duck Forum - duck folks tend to respond pretty regularly over there.

 

and meanwhile, take a look at the poultry podiatry page of poultrypedia.  There is a good writeup about leg problems.

 

And the best news is this thread explaining how slipped tendon was successfully treated in a bantam duckling.
