What do I do to help my duck with her beak. It is bleeding from being pecked at by a raven. Not too badly but some coagulated blood about an inch square. Thanks! (Or vet?) The backstory. Okay so the situation is a bit weird but I have a cayuga cross duck who desperately wants to be a mother. I have no male ducks. She did the same thing last year in November. She leaves my fenced pond by somehow squeezing out and finds a secret hiding place in the woods on my property by the stream to make a nest. This last time she laid five eggs and has been diligently laying on them for a week. I thought maybe this time she may have fertilized eggs because we had a wild male mallard visit a week before she started disappearing. I just came home to check on her as I have been leaving her be and scared a raven that was at her. He damaged two eggs and had pecked her beak so it is bleeding. She was very upset so I attended to the three eggs left and took her into a pen area to be safe. I just checked the eggs and they are not fertilized. So yet another hysterical pregnancy for her. In November I found her inside a brush cave fully covered by a foot of snow sitting on 10 eggs! Should I get a male duck so she can be a mom? She is the only duck I have that is not silly and actually makes a nest. The others just lay an egg and waddle on or roll them into the pond. I have a paddle boat and golf ball retriever just to go egg hunting each day. Thanks!
