Duckling Reunited


Finally was able to reunite the smallest duckling with it's Mother and siblings this morning. They were still together this evening, so am hoping it will survive. The other duckling with a badly broken leg is under my care for the moment. After a visit to the Vet I was given no hope, but I insisted on giving it a chance.

The break was bandaged up by the Vet but came off an hour after returning home. So I had to redo the bandage in a more secure fashion. Fingers crossed it will mend well enough to be functional and survive. I had a duckling in 2013 with a badly broken leg which healed up and it survived, so I'm an eternal optimist when it comes to birds ability to heal themselves.  See photos below.
