Hello! Sorry if this has been posted before in any way, shape, or form, I am new and not quite figured out how to navigate everywhere yet. So, the duck. My stepdad bought the duck down from his pen on the allotment, as he said it had a broken leg. We had a duck with a broken leg before, but we think it got gangrene and died. This duck is fine - eating, drinking, pooping, sleeping. His leg is very swollen, he can't seem to move it and there appears to be pockets of fluid surrounding the joint. These pockets of fluid are above the skin, the closest thing I can compare them to are blisters. I have felt his leg and can't feel anything obvious about the joint, and it doesn't seem to hurt him when I touch it. I've read somewhere about splinting the leg, but we tried that with the last duck and it died - probably not anything to do with us splinting his leg, but we're a little paranoid about doing it again in case something like that happens again. He is currently in a rabbit hutch, and doesn't have to move far for food or water. He hasn't been out of this hutch for a few days apart from when we give him cuddles. We haven't given him any medicine or tried to do anything with his leg. It's not hot to touch and it doesn't look infected. I would just like a little bit of advice on if you think it would heal, and if we can somehow speed the healing process along. Any other information that is needed I will be more than happy to supply it! I'm going to try and get a picture of the leg later, it might help people gauge how bad it is. Thanks for your help!
