    Ive had this duckling for a week now and he was Pigeon toed at the beginning and a few days later his back foot went behind him. When I let him sit on my hand I pull it forward and it stays for a fee seconds and goes backward again. He's getting nician and 18% protein. [​IMG][/IMG]

    I've never had this exact issue, but when I've had a very young duckling with any sort of limb issue, swimming in a warm bathtub has seemed to help in most cases. Might be worth a try.

    Oh yes left that out! He swims alot lol its so cute. I had a duck about a year ago with this same issue but didn't show its self until he was 3 weeks old and corrected with my constant indoor care and nician daily after 3 weeks. I assumed he grew way to fast for his body.
