    i have a duck who i bought from a flea market and he came with a metal leg band. but i was wondering if there was a way i could take it off. he is limping on that foot and i think he is starting to out grow it.

    Yes, you can take them off. It may take some effort, but you should be able to pry the open ends apart.
