    Poor Phineas, we think she injured her hips coming out of the chicken coop where my son found her laying in the mud on her tummy. Both her legs go back behind her and she cant tuck them under her or stand on them. She is resting in a warm cozy crate in the house with food, water, and a towel to prop her up. I hope our baby girl makes it. She was our first duck. Please help if you have any ideas
