    I have two ducks who constantly fight.My girl runner,the lead hen,attacks the duck with a crook leg.And also my khaki hen fights her.The runner tries breaking it up.

    I watched bandit patrol and it said they take down the weak.My crooked duck is very weak,and she is always getting in fights with the khaki hen.The coop is filled with feathers.Is my Khaki hen trying to "Kill" my white crooke d duck?

    Ducks and chickens will go after a weak duck. They can kill her and since everyone is ganging up you really need to step in now and protect her. Sounds like she is a special duck and will need special care. I would bring her inside and keep her there till she is strong again.

    The chickens don't care for the ducks,not 1 bit.

    I agree with needlessjunk you need protect your disabled duck before she is injured beyond help, stress is as bad as an injury.
