    My female duck is limping and pulling her foot up when she stands still. The leg feels a little hotter then the others. Upon examination, i could not find any cuts or sores and no swelling is evident. She is kept with her male and they are VERY closely bonded. I do not want to have to seperate them if possible. Help.

    Is the Drake breeding her?.....Possibly injured her leg from breeding or slipping?.....If you suspect breeding injury ? ....Put a larger rubber livestock bowl or kiddie pool out for them to breed in....Makes it easier for Ducks to breed in water.....


    Best wishes....


    Cheers!
