My grandson and I have had so much enjoyment from hatching chicken eggs, which btw is like potato chips...can't have just one....good thing we have a lot of land lol.....anyway, we decided to try some ducklings. The first one hatched and soon was up wobbling around. But, the second one hatched then just sort of laid around. I was convinced it wasn't going to survive the hour, but he (or she) is still plugging along. The problem is I have noticed his little legs lay out to the sides instead of underneath him. If I pick him up and sort of cradle him in my hand and "hold" his legs under him correctly he acts fine. But as soon as I let go, down he goes, and out go the legs. I thought that splayed leg occurred after being on slippery surfaces for too long. But this one has been this way from the beginning. Any ideas? Can I treat it by sort of taping his legs where they should be and hope they firm up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
