    i have a crippled duck who still gets around okay, i allow her the full pen inside and out because she loves it. i dont think she is in a lot of pain but maybe some. i occasionall wrap it with vet rap and i accidentally pulled on it and she quacked loudly. i feel bad for her because she is so sweet. she had bumblefoot and then twisted it about a year ago and it never got better. any ideas on how to make it better? there is a big bump at the top of her leg probably where she broke it or twisted it. what can i do to help the pain go away a little bit or make it heal? thank you

    she has been like this for about a year and limps heavily when she gets around.

    Could you post a picture? If she seems to not be in pain and gets around okay, I'd say she's okay. What exactly is twisted or injured? What do you mean when you say crippled? I picture an injury to her spine when you say crippled.

    So, is she just limping? If so she probably stepped on a rock or something and will be fine in a few days. Ducks heal pretty quickly... [​IMG]
