Ok so yesterday evening my husband goes down to take care of our ducklings and discovers that one had it's leg twisted back and 90 degrees so that it was stuck between the body and the thigh with the bottom of the foot facing up. How this happened or for how long it was like that I haven't a clue. the only obstacle in the brooder is the waterer. We untwisted the leg and it was swollen and a pinkish white color. This morning it is looking a little less swollen and a little more the normal color. So far the duckling is unable to move the leg. Hopefully it will straighten out and I won't need to cull it.
