    I'm looking at that cute little thing & that leg he's dragging is dark & being dragged in everything. It will probably get injured & infected B4 long if it isn't already. I'm kinda worried for the little thing.

    me too. If it was mine, I would have those two extra legs amputated for its own good.

    Quote:I agree it needs to have them amputated for it's well being. They aren't being used they are just extra and will get stuck or harm the ducks when it gets older. That is just terrible.

    Those extra legs look dead and just awful. I'm sure that the other ducks pecking at them doesn't help either.

    Interesting! It seems to be doing fine. It is doing better than the Turkey I hatched with no legs. I had to get rid of it right away.
