    I have two baby ducks and I desperately need help! This morning I took them out to clean where I've been keeping them as babies as they are 1 day shy of being 3 weeks old and I think i may have injured its leg because when I put it down it couldn't walk on its leg and it's out to the side. Now it's just laying there and I feel so guilty what do I do please help? :([​IMG]

    I don't think just picking your duckling up could have broken it's leg did you drop the duckling? So you think this is an injury if you think it's broken then a vet would be able to help. it will need vet care.

    I agree...Picking it up would not break its leg....Are they getting niacin in the diet..Possibly you did not notice its leg was sore before you cleaned the bedding?......


    Cheers!
