My husband, a big tough traditional cowboy here in the panhandle of Texas, brought home a four month old white duck. I know nothing about ducks. The reason the man brought home this duck is because he heard he was being picked and could not get around as quickly, he felt for him. Big 'ol softy for the birds, I've noticed. Bo, the duck came with a name, seems to have the equivalent of a clubbed foot. It has caused his other leg to bow out he uses his wings to balance as he hobbles along. Occasionally I've seen him use his beak to regain his balance. He doesn't seem to be in pain, he lets me mess with both feet and even straighten out and apply pressure to the foot that is just simply turned in. He's been very social with the hens and likes to quack at out dogs. I am a stay at home wife/mother whe raises cattle, chickens, and horses I spend most of my day outside, time is not an issue if that's all he needs....Wondering if anyone has seen a duck live like this successfully? Is it too late to help him learn to use his good foot better? I'm fully prepared to work with him in a pool, he can swim fairly well, as a form of therapy. He can't actually get in and out by himself, I was told. Poor guy has only been in the water once. Or do I need to do what no one else would and put the duck down? Thank you for taking the time to read and provide some input. Bo and I appreciate it!
