    Hi, my name is Emma and I had a fox attack that killed most of my flock and I only had one survivor. He is a 2 year old drake Call duck and his wing is injured. He does not move it much and he just lets it drop down. I don't know if is broken or just injured. He has some bite wounds under and on top of his wing. He can lift it a little, but can't tuck it tight to his body like the other wing. Should I tape the wing or just watch to see if it gets better on its own. Can anyone please give me some advise on what I sould do with my drake.

    I'm sorry, I don't know what you should do about the wing injury, but I would recommend gently cleaning any wounds and putting Vetericyn or Neosporine on them. You don't want to have to face a secondary infection on top of everything else.
