    Ok, I have this D'Uccle that has a twisted leg and curled toes. I've had him booted and hobbled for over 48 hours and it has made NO difference. Is there anything wrong with just leaving him be? It doesn't seem to bother him as he (oh yeah, I think that he's a he) gets around fine and even perches on a little roost I made for them.

    I have one with a bum leg too. She eats, drinks and she is the fasted and most aggressive when it comes to treats. I say if she is healthy and isn't suffering so be it. Just make sure if she free ranges to keep an eye on her and bring her in at night, I did loose one to my own neglect that I didn't get her in by nightfall, and I never saw her again.
