Update for miss Abigail. This morning she was fairly active and quacking and drinking normally. I'm worried that she's not eating enough though, she'll take a bite of food, then drop most of it and stretch her neck, I think her neck is sore that it hurts to swallow. The blood bruise on her back is almost gone, and all the bite wounds look clean and pinks her eye doesn't look worse or better. I think there might be a burst blood vessel there? She can still use the eye though. She was actually trying to groom herself, and even layed an egg! Is there anything I can do to help her eat? I made the food a mash to kind of help, but she's only eating tiny amounts.
I usually make like a soupy gruel so they can actually drink it, if she is drinking that may be the way to feed her for a few days until her ne ck is feeling better. also some poultry vitamins in her drinking water. No wounds on her neck? we had a member a few years ago with a duck a dog got hold of and the dog bit into the esophagus water and feed would come out the hole. Hopefully nothing like that with your duck. Sounds like she is making progress.
