Then days pass and she couldn't walk on her foot it was swollen only was her middle toe that was swollen and then the other ducks were stepping on her and she lost a few feathers then she couldn't stand on her own or walk she could move her legs but was weak stand or walk I brought her inside and thats when I started to treat her heat on her foot and then all of sudden her good leg got bad and swollen on the knee part and now she doesn't walk and when she wants to get up she uses her wings to move around . And I don't know want to do . please help I just cant lose her

Hi :welcome

Glad you could join the flock! Sorry to hear you have a poorly duck :hugs I'm not a duck person but you have done the right thing by separating her. As your duck has had an injured leg she may have been compensating for this by using her good leg which in turn has become injured. Please do drop by the duck section of the forum for help from the duck experts. Here is the link > https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

Wishing you the very best of luck I hope she is well soon :frow

I suggest you post in full detail at "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread and also on the duck thread at (Other Backyard Poultry" forum above. Is it possible she has a broken bone? Poor baby, hope they can offer you the best advice.

I've heard to use swimming therapy if a duck has a sprain then swimming will make there legs stronger but if it is broke then you should find a way to splint it with a pop cycle stick but I would definitely keep it away from the other ducks till it heels they will only make it worse

@DaffyDuck , you're doing ok. I remember my earlier days of stumbling around here trying to figure out where things are. Good luck to you with your duck!
