    I HAD THIS LITTLE BUTTERSCOTCH CALL DUCK AND EVERY TIME I LOOKED IN THE BROODER IT WAS LAYING ON ITS SIDE OR BACK.SO WHAT I DID WAS TOOK A PEACOCK FEATHER AND CUT 2 PIECES ABOUT 4 OR 5 INCHES LONG AND TAPED IT TO THE LEG BETWEEN THE FOOT AND THE KNEE WHERE IT IS STICKING STRAIT UP WHEN IT IS STANDING. AFTER THAT EVERY TIME HE FLIPPED OVER THE PART STICK UP FLIPPED IT BACK ON ITS FEET. I LEFT IT ON THERE FOR ABOUT A WEEK. NOW IT IS FINE WITH NO PROBL[​IMG]EMS AT ALL.

    WHAT'S BIOMECHANICS? HA HA. I AM JUST NOT THAT SMART. IT'S JUST THAT WHEN YOU SEE A LITTLE BIRD IN TROUBLE LIKE THAT YOU HAVE TO TRY EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING TO HELP.
