Has anyone seen a duck do this before? I noticed this duckling had a limp and I thought it was my injured duckling that I saw a month ago (I think he's made a full recovery, by the way). But, it turned out he only had a foot that was turned in. Otherwise, he seemed fine. But, he wouldn't rush into the water when I approached. I was checking on Tom (the lake Muscovy who is being eaten alive by mites) and this duck just ran in front of me and stood by the water's edge. Finally, he went in the water and this is how he looked! No wonder why he didn't want to go in! It's almost like he's missing part of the front that keeps him afloat. He circled around and went back on the land. I didn't see any of this year's ducklings with these issues before, so I wonder if it's an acquired injury or disease. I don't know how long he can live with this problem.
