I think my baby ducks leg is broken

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have two baby ducks and I desperately need help! This morning I took them out to clean where I've been keeping them as babies as they are 1 day shy of being 3 weeks old and I think i may have injured its leg because when I put it down it couldn't walk on its leg and it's out to the side. Now it's just laying there and I feel so guilty what do I do please help? sad.png

I agree...Picking it up would not break its leg....Are they getting niacin in the diet..Possibly you did not notice its leg was sore before you cleaned the bedding?......
