    My female pekin duck just had a nest of 21 eggs that she was sitting on and she never hatched any of them bc she completely crushed most of them and I honestly don't know what happened to the rest of them. Now she is very dirty, won't get in her pond and clean herself and this morning I noticed she is losing a lot of weight. The other day I saw her trip but I just thought it was her being clumsy and nothing to be concerned about but this morning she started freaking out and I looked behind me and she was laying on the ground and couldn't get up bc her foot was flopped the other way. Before I could catch her to check on her though she figured out how to fix her foot bc she won't let me catch her. What could be wrong??? :( please help...
