Our 6-month-old peking duck was attacked by something in our yard, the huge wound is all healed now after 4 weeks she can swim and stand with support but can't stand on her own or walk. any advise, we either prop her on towels or have her in kiddie pool so she does not scrape wings trying to get around

Welcome to BYC!

Sorry to hear about your duck! Some more info would be helpful, what are you feeding, could you post a picture of her, and the wound, did she walk fine prior to the attack, do you see any sign of Bumblefoot, try setting your finger underneath her foot, does she grasp around it?
