In the Brooder
- Sep 24, 2013
I went to go apple picking with my family two days ago and before we left I took both of my ducks out of their house and they were fine and could walk fine. When we came back one of my ducks was sitting down and thats odd considering my ducks so I checked and her leg was sticking outwards while she was sitting. I thought hse was just sitting funny so I stood her up and her damaged foot isnt opened up like the other usually is and she wasnt doing the swimming motion with that foot. If she walks she tries to hold up the damaged side with her wing. Right now I keep her in her house with food and water and shes drinking and eating, and once every day I put her in the pond and shes able to move the injured foot a little to get around. I dont know any vets that could help. I read somewhere on this site that its normal for ducks to injure their foot (it doesnt look like theres an infection). I just dont know if its broken or sprained or what? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
