injured duck

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I went to feed the animals and noticed that our duck can't walk. She tries to stand and just falls over. It looks like maybe something in her back end is broke but not sure. When she tries to stand, her her whole back end is tucked under. I've got her inside in a big tote with food and water. What else can I do?

@mbeeler09  I would get her inside, into a tub of lukewarm water.  She may be egg bound.

 

Stay with her especially at first - make sure she can float, keep her head above water.

 

Sometimes all they need is half an hour to an hour in the water to relax and let go of the egg.

 

Are there drakes?

 

Other animals?
