Can you give me some tips for duck leg braces? I just had a duckling hatch with leg issues. Her right leg seems to drag behind her. She tries to use it and it has some strength but not much. I tried the rubberband through a straw and that was pointless, she got it right off.

You can use a pipe cleaner and medical tape viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7971043&p=226430&hilit=pipe+cleaner#p2264

Most of the links don't work but the last post gives a pretty good description, if you google pipe cleaner and ducklings legs a few current links come up. Good luck.
