    My ducks were attacked today. In the past I have lost one chicken and one duck. But this time I lost three. One is wounded on the head and seems to be blind now. Any advice? I have cleaned with warm water and brought inside in the warmth. Not eating or drinking. Definitely seems to be in shock. Just happened hours ago so any advice would be good. Too late for a vet and I would like to handle at home if at all possible. Thanks guys

    Please isolate the duck and keep in a warm ,darkened, quiet area. He sounds like he is in shock. Don't try to push any fluids or food at this time. Hopefully he will come out of it .

    :welcome please keep the duck warm and in a fair quiet area. Do not mess with the duck. Stress can make these shock situations much worse. Offer food and water tomorrow evening if the shock seems to have worn off. Please update us with news tomorrow :hugs
