    So last summer we had got this black duck hence the name Daffy anyways he has a broken wing and I'm just curious if we were to get him a mate if that wing would work against him I have no idea how ducks breed. So my question is can he do the duck mambo still?

    Thanks Coulter Family Farm

    depends on how it has affected him, can he use it at all, it would mostly be just to help with balance, i don't think it would really interfer with him doing the mambo.

    When he flaps his wings that one kind of just flops around back a forth.

    How long ago did he break it? Maybe wrap it up for a week for support to see if it heals and he has more mobility of it?
