    One of my crested pekin ducks got her bill stepped on by a goat during dinner last night. I did not see it happen and am guessing that is what happened but when I went out to the barn for breakfast her back feathers were bloody. I caught her and looked her over and found no wounds. Tonight I caught her again and brought her into the house due to more blood on her stomach. Once I got her in more light and with no other animal around I saw her bill is cracked pretty bad. There is blood coming out but not dripping. She is eating and drinking and talking. Do I do anything? Thanks
