Does anyone know what's wrong with my duck? She's a year and a half old Golden 300 duck. She'd started limping a while back, and figured she'd get better, as two other ducks had limped for a day and then got better. But, she didn't get better, and we noticed that her leg looked swollen. I finally got a good look at her let (needed to get my husband to help catch her), and noticed a growth of some sort protruding from her leg. I tried to get a picture of it, but she's skiddish and my camera has horrid zoom. Here's the best picture I could get. I'll try to get a better one tomorrow.

Anyone have any ideas what's going on with her leg?

I have no idea what is wrong with yours, but we have a duck we named Gimpy that has had a broken leg for at least two years. She's doing fine, even if she limps a lot and doesn't explore as much as the rest of the duck collective. (I miss Evan's duck tales.)
Then YOU must do the pig's work! Read this tiny ad. READ IT!
