Hmmm, it looks like the problem is in the hip? Or is it the joint just above the foot? Can you feel the bones to see where it is broken/dislocated?

Yes, I think so too - it's probably problem in hip. I tried pull his leg with small force to restore but no juice. He will live, but will not as fast as others ducks and he can't keep up with them with all running around. Anyway, thanks for help! But if somebody have something to add - you are welcome.
