    This is as good as I could get. She is in our pond and will swim over rather than walk with the others on the bank. It did not look like bumble foot from the pics that I have seen. Thinking may be sprained? While trying to coax her back to the pen to encourage her to rest, one of the males got frisky with her. I think he may have injured her

    Maybe the wing injury is from over mating drakes can be rough. As for the foot hard to see if there is a bumble if you could get someone to hold her and you get a good pic? I’d give her a break from the drakes for a while with a female buddy that’s probaly the only way she’ll recover. Or give the drakes some time out for a while .

    This thread was made in 2012 and when you click on her it says she has not been on since 2013 so I don't know if this thread is still going...unless other people chime on and ask Q's.

    O wow...maybe her time stuff is wrong...or I looked at the wrong thing. I am always doing this kind of stuff....I should probably stay out of it. Sorry!

    It’s okay when someone posts on an old thread it can get confusing for sure I go back as far as necessary to find where the new post starts.
