    Photos or video would help.

    Meantime, look through this page and see if any of it sounds like what's going on.

    It could be slipped tendon, and recently someone posted about successful treatment. But before going into that, let's see if we can sort out what is going on.

    Often ducklings have B vitamin deficiencies that affect their legs, too.
