Awesome K thanks for the encouragement, and ideas, what do you think of the sling option?
I like the sling option if it the duck will stay still in it and keep weight off of the fractured foot.
Thanks so much all of you! Great stuff! I am so blessed to have found you!

@mskupcake How is your duck doing?
Well, we have been back to the vet the bones have not healed. She has nerve damage but not sure to what extent yet. Her circulation has come back the foot stays pretty warm now but she can't spread her toes at all, that's were the nerve damage comes in. I have taken a finger splint & created a splint for her that doesn't cover any of her toes because she was trying to use the foot & it swelled really bad. I did make her one of those walker things you sent me but she hates it lol.
I am doing some therapy on her leg above the broken foot bone to keep strength & movement good. She is getting a nice warm bath daily & some vitamins.
Vet said with the bones being crushed it could take 6 weeks to 6 months to heal if they ever heal completely.
So right now she is just being a spoiled little angel.
See if you can find some T-Relief ointment. It is supposed to help healing. Or you can make a comfrey and St. John's wort salve.
Here is her splint I made
Thank you for updating. Gosh she truly is being loved and cared for. I hope it makes a big difference and you see her up and walking well before the 6months is up. She may not be 100% but still be able to get around and be a happy duck. Please keep us updated.. I think those walker things take time to get use to. maybe once healing begins she'll use it that way she can get around some on her own.
