    hi
    my 12 week old male duck has a limp from when he was hatched and I've taken him to the vet but theres nothing i can do to fix it. i have just but him with my two female ducks and my 5 silky chickens but now I'm wondering if he will be able to mate with them due to his bad leg but please note he can still walk and run slowly.

    Is your concern that he'll be trampled or that he's too weak to make it?

    he'll definitely be fine he is very fit and strong and he's more of the boss now its just he has a limp so I'm not sure if the other two ducks will let him mate with them

    Use a kiddie pool for breeding... Easier to breed in water...


    Cheers!
