My duck broke his leg about 5 weeks ago. The break was high up in the leg near the hip so we couldn't splint it. We had his leg bound to his body for 3 weeks and the bone has callused over but he still can't use his foot. He limps on his leg but has no control over his foot and walks on it sometimes. I'm not sure what to do. Personality wise he's the same as ever but I'm not sure if he's in pain or how much. We called the vet and she said the bone didn't heal properly and we should probably put him down, but we could wait and see.
