Help dog attacked my ducks - Page 3

We used a blunt-end syringe, we made a paste and she slowly began to let us syringe it into her mouth and took a Minuit to swallow each little squirt sad.png she's so much better now, I really hope your duck does big_smile.png

So happy to hear that yours is doing better. What was your recipe?

Her name is Elsa. She is a jumbo pekin and so sweet. She is eating small amounts of mealworms and that's it. She did eat some dirt and grass this morning. When should I intervene and fed her myself? Are there signs? Or is she just in pain right now and this little bit of food ok? I just want to make sure she is getting the nutrients she needs. We tube fed our khaki kaytee brand baby bird food and she did well on that. This happened Wednesday in the middle of the night.

My 2 khakis are still very scared. Today we let them out all day for the first time since the dog attack. They are very scared and hiding under the porch most of the day. They haven't been eating or drinking like normal. I know they probably miss Elsa and are scared. Is this normal? Should I give them a few more days before I really start to worry?

Here's a photo of Elsa and my son. He pampers her and has been so great taking care of her.
