    I have a duckling that hatched yesterday, it has very twisted legs! I've straightened out club foot, I've dealt with straddle leg, but I've never seen one quite this bad! Wondering if anyone out there has ever dealt with one this bad that was fixed or at least got mostly better and had a good quality of life! I will totally keep her as a pet if I can help her feet . She's getting vitamin water and electrolytes she got a very healthy appetite I'm also massaging her feet every time I help her eat about every hour and a half to two hours. She's also getting niacin in her water on top of duck starter which also has niacin
