Hi guys. Our Jumbo Pekin, Creamputt, got the bright idea to stick her head out the chain link fence to dig through some new different dirt. I guess something peaked her interest back inside the fence so instead of pulling her head back into the yard she stuck it through another hole in the fence to dig in the old dirt and got stuck. Luckily she wasn't there all that long before I found her. She had managed to do some damage to her bill though. We got the bleeding stopped and took care of her neck with blukote. I had kept non-medicated antibiotic cream on her bill for the first week. It no longer bothers her and she goes about her life like normal now. She has been inside since this happened, approximately 2.5-3 weeks ago. She is a big duck and as you can imagine can make a big mess! So I am ready for her to go back out but I do not want to put her out before it is safe to do so. She has spent some time in a separate pen with one other duck away from the flock and seems to have done well with no problems My question is from the looks of her bill in the pic ( I know it is hard to tell) do you think she could go out with the rest of the flock, chickens and ducks? Guess my concern is her damaging the tender tissues. Or should I just continue to let her spend time in the small portable coop and recuperate? Also is there anything besides waiting for it to grow out to be done?
