    I had a duckling with splayed legs. I have had hobbles on for about three days. How long should I keep them on. It seems to be doing fine now and gets around pretty good. It is on a non-slip surface too.

    The earlier you hobble them the quicker they recover in my experience - if it can walk normally now- leave them off..... but watch carefully for any re- occurrence.
