Chester is a rescue that was dumped at the vet's office. Now he's mine. I think he had some nutritional problems as a smaller duckling. His original owner only fed him catfood. He is supposedly 8-9 weeks old. I have had him for almost 2 weeks. He is now eating the appropriate food and just had a growth spurt. He seems to have a crooked leg. Should I worry about this? Is there something I can do? The crooked leg wasn't evident until he had his growth spurt over the last few days. I am worried that it's because he is getting heavier and his legs migh not be strong enough. Is a crooked leg common on a duck? Will he be ok? I believe he is a Pekin. We bought him a kiddie pool over the weekend that he seems to enjoy.
