    A rat got in and attacked our 2 week old ducklings. One injured none dead. He got her by the hip (no broken bones) she can move her leg if pressure is applied she needs assistance eating and drinking (she doesn't want to stand) i have her on a spray and save a chick. Any other ideas? Think she'll walk?

  2. Oof, rats. Man I dont know. I'd be concerned with infection. Rats can put a serious hurtn on anything it bites. Maybe someone on here can help, but Id take mine to the vet, tbh. Good luck with it.
