    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Can you post a close-up of the little one's leg and some more details, please? Are you sure it's broken?

    No I'm not completely sure. I'm just woke up and found her like this. I don't know how it happen. She's in a big box with bedding. She can't walk on it but she does still get around. It's been like this for a week now.

    I checked the bottom of her foot and it's fine.

    Welome to BYC!

    Can you feel a break in the leg?

    If so, and if it had only been like that a day or two then I would have said to pop the leg back into place, but since it's been like that a week, I would say to take it to a vet and see what the vet thinks about it.

    Is the duckling making any paining noises? If it it is, I would strongly advise taking it to a vet.
