    Well I let the ducks out this morning only to find I have two ducks limping

    I caught them and it seems that on the bottom of ones foot it has a large bump on the middle of the middle toe. Nothings broken that I can see or feel.

    The other duck is limping but i couldnt figure out what was wrong with it. SO I put them both in the ducky hospital lol.

    I'll check up on them later and hopefully the not moving around will help with it.

    Poor things and poor you, seems like something is always going wrong with your ducks [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Its just been a really rough winter. In summer I dont really have any problems except snakes comming for the eggs or mice that nest around here. But this winter Ive lost my first ducks, had a bunch injured and... well Im just hoping that my luck changes once My dad gets my pen built, so that i'll have double the space. And with spring I'll be able to sell my extra ducks so my flock will be smaller and easier to herd around lol.

    Hope they get better soon. Sometimes a little TLC is all that's needed.

    Rest and warm baths in the tub work well. Just ask Microduck!

    They arent limping as heavily now, and have been foraging happily and playing in the water holes [​IMG]
