    I noticed my duck which has been limping, has its toes curled on its left leg which is also the problem leg. Whenever I try touching it's tied it starts pecking at me. What can I do to fix this? Is it fixable?

    Most of the time it will correct itself as the duck grows. If it doesn't then it will just have curled toes, it's not really a big deal. The duck will just get around a bit slower but it's not painful or anything. But they almost always grow out of it.
