In the Brooder
- Mar 8, 2018
Hi. I have a female runner chick that was attacked by one of my geese. Her head is very bruised up. I had her resting in a crate with loads of water and food. I was doing warm compressed on her head and damaged eye. Things looked good after a day. But she didn’t eat anything. I put her back with her runner duck friends. In a separated area. Hoping she will bounce back. However. She seems to get scared and when she tries to get away. He legs go stiff and she flopps forward and can’t get up. Her legs are then just sprayed behind her. I’m not sure if this is from not eating for a few days or she may have more head trauma than I though. Has anyone had a duck do this when scared and unable to get away?
