Yesterday morning I had to put my Rouen to sleep. She was attacked by a racoon that tore one wing off and left the other broken. She was in such shock that she just stood there. The blood loss was bad Broke my heart. The doctor said that surgery is possible but she most likely will not survive. It figures that ONE time I don't put them in the cage (I was out very late and didn't get home till 2:30 am and came home to her like this) this would happen. I am very sad. But my biggest worry is Maybelle, my Pekin. They grew up together since they hatched, and this is their first time being apart from each other. I don't want her to get lonely. I am giving her as much attention as I can. How do I know if she is getting lonely? Will I need to get another duck for her? When getting another duck for her, should I get her a duckling that she can take care of (is that possible)? or should I get a full grown duck that might not get along with her? I have an animal trap outside and last night I caught a possum, the possum didn't seem to care about the egg bait (whatever attacked Cinny wanted the eggs). So I am just assuming racoon, but how will I know? I will set the trap every night until I catch it. I know I asked a lot of questions, but anything helps. Thanks!
