I noticed one of my ducks were slipping on one foot like. It’s foot is sticking out more than the other and I don’t know what to do. I feel like it’s injured but I don’t want to make assumptions right away. Does anyone know what I should do?

Can we have some pictures of the foot?

1. How old is the duck?
2. How long has it been since you noticed this?
3. What is it's diet like?
4. When you say slipping do you mean on slippery surfaces? In the grass or dirt? Or is your duck actually tripping?
5. What is the surface area composed of in your coop/run/brooder? Ex. Grass, wood shavings, mulch, sand, stone etc.

I agree with the above a picture would be very helpful as well.
