Hi All, This is only my second post, so bear with me if i sound like a newbie, i am. I have 9 welsh harlequins that are about 4 months old. they live in our barn in a predator proofed room at night, but free range down to the creek during the day. We had 10 ducks until 2 days ago. we went down to put them up and i noticed one was missing, plus they were extra skittish. there are some high weeds near our creek and barn, and we live in the country so it is likely there was a predator in the brush/weeds. we decided to try and check on them more and make sure to put them up a little earlier. then, yesterday, when we went down to put them to bed we noticed one of the ladies has a twisted leg, bent backwards up to her side and she isn't using it. we are worried! it seems like a predator maybe came back and attacked/pulled on this other ducks leg, though we aren't positive. today she is moving even less and the other ducks are picking on her a bit. i want to separate her so that she can at least get food and water, as they are preventing it. is there anything we can do to help her leg if it is broken? if not, should we cull her? it would be a lot of work just to cull one duck (we did 4 at a time a few weeks ago because we had too many males). i appreciate your thoughts about this! my other questions revolve around predator management. i expect most people will say we are playing with fire having them free range out in the country like this. we felt confidant doing it because our neighbors also have ducks that they free range with no problems... yet. we don't want to limit their creek access, but can't logistically fence in the creek too. our options are to fence in around our garden and barn and have a gate that we can open and let them down to the creek when we are there, or to weed eat all brush and keep free ranging, or both. if we fenced around our garden and barn would it have to be electric to do any good? its a lot of work to build a fence and we can't afford to waste the time/energy if a raccoon or fox will just dig under or climb over. thank you for your thoughts!!
