    My little duck made it out of the shell but he can't walk. It's been about 12 hours now. I think something may be wrong with his feet? Is therecabything I can do? 20180322_193141.jpg

    I have never gone through this with ducks but I think it's much the same process as chicks. Basically you want to straighten the feet onto some tap so the feet set in the right position

    Hopefully these will give you an idea of how to fix the feet
