I'll try and keep this short because I always rant oh my gosh... Last night my whole family forgot to close up the birds for the first time in three years, we all have flu and we could barely move. Mr Fox of course was waiting and my dad was woken up at 3am by the guineas screaming louder than he's ever heard before (which as y'all will know is pretty loud anyway) and he rushed out, bleary eyed, in his boxers to see what was wrong. Fox was stood there eyeing up the birds, feathers all over the lawn and just about every single bird was out of the three coops bumping into things and hiding in brambles. He had to literally boot the fox to get it to move and even then it only trotted off. He collected up all the birds he could find in an hour and a half but the guineas and a drake were missing and he feared the worst. Luckily all the birds were back this morning, and he called me out for a head count. All the chooks are fine and both the guineas are okay apart from the hen has basically her whole wing bare of feathers (which are all over the lawn). The missing drake was cowering under some boards and he needed a bit of TLC but everyone looked okay and I was thanking my lucky stars... But then I saw one of the ducks had not moved in 15 minutes and was lying down very awkwardly. She didn't run away when I grabbed her and she hardly even hissed. Her wings covered it up, but there is a huge, like palm sized piece of flesh missing from her back, but it is pretty cleanly sliced and there's no dirt in it... On one leg, one of her toes looks broken and she won't put weight on the other leg but she can move it and flex her toes, and it hasn't been chewed... I'm assuming what happened was mr fox tried to pick her up and when she was too heavy he tried to drag her off by the leg. I put some colloidal silver on the wound but me and my dad were late for school and work already, and my mum had to take my sister to a medical appointment (she's not very competent with the birds anyway)... So that's all that can be done until I get home at about 4:30 tonight (it's 9:40am here presently). I'll post a picture later, I wondered if anyone has experience with this sort of wound and is there any home treatment that I can do? We're taking my bearded dragon to the vet tomorrow for a follow up on an operation so we can get some meds for the duck as well but my parents have just spent £1,200 on that operation and my parents are doing a self build atm, so we don't have any spare money as it is... Uggghhh yeah. It's very stressful atm. Does anyone know anything I can do to keep her going strong? I thought if I can disinfect the wound and keep the flies away, she might be okay on some antibiotics until it heals? Thanks guys!
