    Help needed!
    I recently bought some ducklings at TSC....Thursday afternoon to be exact. They were fine when I got them. Friday morning i went out to feed and one of the ducklings was having trouble getting around...Saturday morning it couldn't use one of its legs at all. I thought maybe spraddle leg and did the treatment for that and it hasn't gotten any better..now I'm thinking it's a slipped Achilles' tendon. What can I do to help it?? I started it on Poly Vi sol with no iron Sunday.
