    Well I guess it's our turn for disaster ... Good news Only 1 of my 4 is badly hurt the rest are ok , a second had minOr injury . We know it was a coon (prints) and how it got the ducks, we spoke with a vet he told us to clean wound with salt water we've put it in our small brooder in the house with towels and feed/water ... It has drank .. Oye I hope it lives [​IMG] anyhow were off getting supplies tO secure the run. I'm on phone so dunno how well this post will work. Is there any othe tips btdt advice for an injured duckling. What a crash coarse in duck ownership lol and to boot we have a brutle storm(thunder etc) It is "supposed" to clear tho if it doesnt we'll bring the ducks in the house tonight...

    Quote:Thank you that was a helpful read. He/She is still alive this morning(thankfully) which i hope is a good sign. The babies all came in the house last night so we could get a nights rest without worry, we're finishing up the run today.
