    Last night my fox proof pen ( as I had thought ) was broken into and two of my apricot campbell's ducks were killed. I put the two very traumatised remaining ducks to bed hoping they would be in their dark area and calm down. This morning they are not eating or drinking, not quacking and I wonder what is best for them . I would like to examine them all over for injury and put them in a warm bath, then keep them indoors for a while but will that be adding to their stress.

    You need to check them for injury so you can address anything if they do have injuries.
    Then fix your pen where it wasn't fox proof.
