    my fear is the infection. Should I kill her to stop her from suffering. This drake is becoming a problem. I am so sad she was a great layer :(

    How severe is the damage? Birds are amazing survivors, living through what you would think would kill them. She should be separated.

    Were all the ducks involved or just the drake? Drakes are miserable during breeding season.

    Or maybe just sell it/put it in a different run??? Killing it is an awful idea.
