Can someone please advise me on how to wrap a duck's leg? I have one with a possible slipped tendon, and am unsure of how to correctly wrap it. I know to stretch the leg out behind, and pop the tendon back in place. I've read to use a figure 8 wrap at the hock. Do I wrap the leg straight behind her? Or reset it, then release, and wrap? Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

Thanks for the link. Anyone have any videos on this? I'm a visual learner, and do best by seeing it done vs. just reading. Yes, I've searched YouTube and unfortunately am not finding any videos that show the visual part of wrapping the leg. Thanks again.

I've looked at the links and video. Video was informative, thank you. Now I'm just trying to piece the 2 together in my head. I know it seems silly, but sometimes in order for me to grasp ideas I have to see the whole thing done. I've researched and it seems half wrap the leg straight while it's behind. The other have try to find the nature bend. I'm getting frustrated, and time is passing.

You need to look at the pictures in the link too because it is a bird that is larger than the song bird *and* it had slipped tendon. You should also read the whole thread.
