We have lots of predators here in Florida and once I stop one, another shows up. Yesterday a hawk swooped down on my fave Welsh Harlequin while she was having a swim. I got there two seconds too late and found her bloody, missing tons of feathers and unable to walk. I found the source of the blood but still can’t figure out why she can’t walk. No visible signs of trauma to her legs or hind. I’ve kept her confined on the patio ina crate with food under her bill. She’s eating, but when she tries to walk, she looks like she’s drunk. She falls over and tries to steady herself with her neck and flails all over the place. I’m thinking hip? Please help!

Oh My Lord I am so sorry I don't know what to do but I may know some people who do. @KikisGirls @Hybridchucks

I am so sorry you are having to deal with this.
I am not a duck person so I can't offer any help.
Sit tight someone will be along shortly.
