    I have a duckling who appears to have a dislocated leg today, they are over a week old and were left in moms care this time. I removed this injured duckling, doesn't appear to be in pain and is hollering since separated from mom...

    I noticed the ducklings leg was going outwards while he followed mom, and he was falling over and not getting around very well.. I examined his leg and felt it and where the two bones connect/meet and they feel as if they had slid side by side... I feel as if mom may have hit him or walked onto him causing this to happen.. and these ducklings were hatched for someone else who is picking them up the 28th..
