    I was wondering if anyone may know what may be going on with Carmella,my female Pekin duck.
    Best way to describe what she is doing is she looks like she is trying to walk on her tip toes. She gets around but I also think she seems to also be resting a little more.
    I am just guessing but it seems like I noticed the behavior a few days after she got spooked by one of my dogs.
    Any help is appreciated.

    I believe she is injuried but do not see anything obvious. I am wondering if she strained or possibly pulled something. She got spooked by one of my dogs and ran. Just trying to figure out if that could be the cause and if there is anything to do about it other than giving it time.
    My ducks all get along pretty well so I am not sure if she is the dominant female but she is definately the biggest being the only female Pekin duck I have.
