The duck was taken an animal hospital to review his non-healed leg.  Turns out it’s a compound break and the leg bone in breaking through the skin under the wing.  Luckily, the only duck surgeon in Bucks County was on call and assessed the duck meticulously.
Doctor: I fixed the leg of a chicken of a similar situation.  It took weeks of visits but the chicken made it through.
Ryan: How much would that cost?
Doctor: Around $1000.00.
Ryan: *pause* I think we’ll get a second opinion.
I recommended Madrigal’s Meat Market but he wasn’t interested.  After all this, he refused to eat the damn thing.  So not only does he need to find a way to non-violently euthanize the duck but then we have to bury it.
