Poultry prosthetics

duck with fake leg

One of our ducks had an injured foot that took two months to heal.

In the past few years 3D printing technolgy has been used to give a prosthectic leg to a rooster and a duck.

The surgery costs 2500 dollars, which is a little out of our league. Maybe the cost will go down when home 3D printers get better and cheaper.

Image credit goes to Terence Loring who created the 3D template.
