Duck with hurt neck

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, I have a three month old female (I think) pekin duck with a neck that appears to be hurt. I felt the neck for breaks and there are none. She seems lethargic and does not lift her chin up at all (that’s why I think it’s hurt), she walks with it tucked to her neck, like how ducks look when sitting. I haven’t seen her eat this morning, and I don’t think she’s able to drink from the pool or waterers. The other two ducks are fine, and they share an environment with chickens and little to no predators. The only hazard in the yard I can think of is the duck pond so I have no idea how this happened. What can I do and is she going to be okay? I’m going out now to give her water since I don’t think she can bend her neck to drink. Also, how do I know if the ducks are male or female? : )

Please post over on the duck forum - I think we'll get more people seeing this.

It almost seems as if she may have eaten something toxic.

 

How is she now?

 

This may be something to consider.  http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/700526/flushes-for-aiding-in-toxin-removal#post_9508213

She is the same, except she can slightly stretch her neck. But still no eating or drinking. I've been hand-watering her (careful not to drown her) but cannot hand feed her. I will make sure to post in the forum, thanks!
