    We saved a duck who now has a bad leg a cant keep up with older ducks has to keep laying down after a while he/she can walk but not much at one time walks on its side of its foot :(
    Any recommendations.

    I'd isolate the duck in a crate or other suitable containment if possible so you can take a good look at its leg (and minimize movement, which should help the healing process). What's going on with the leg? Is it swollen or otherwise obviously injured? Is there a bumble? Posting a photo of the problem leg may help with recommendations.
