    i noticed my pet duck couldn’t walk on one of her legs 2 days ago. Today I checked on her and did a more thorough check on her leg and saw that her upper “thigh” part of her leg you could see bone hanging out. We put alcohol on the leg and tried to put it back but couldn’t. So we splintered it up as best we could. I noticed the skin had a tinge of green but their is no sign of infection. Is it possible it could be bruised? Is their anything I should do differently? I’ll try anything to help my baby August.

    We did find a vet and they were very positive with her recovery. She may just have an extra waddle when she walks once everything is healed.

    Aww, poor sweetheart. I’m so glad you got her to a vet! I hope she tolerates her cast well. Good job taking care of her! <3

    My duck broke her leg last year and had to stay in a crate for 6 weeks. She was so mad!

    One of my hens broke her leg. But the bone wasn’t sticking out. I’m so sorry this happened! I would take her to a vet. They should probably be able to fix it. They fixed my hens broken leg. She would’ve died, but the vets helped her. I’m sorry! Tell August get better!
