    This morning my ducks I think we trampled by my dog not sure she's usually really good with them well I'll get to the point there necks were floopy I raised both of there next one slept and woke up and started eating n is doing find the other one is still not but he's in a blanket and is now getting some sleep if his neck was broken was wondering if he'd still be alive I don't think so but wasn't sure cause the other ones neck was limp now he's moving it and is normal but this one hasn't even tried for that much movement but talks a little but tounge not moving what should I do cause if he's dieing I don't want him to be in pain but I also don't want to keep him alive just because I think he might live that's cruel both ways is I love him so much

    Dogs and poultry should never mix. It always end up badly for the birds. Your ducks may have been/are in shock or had internal injuries. Please post in full detail , pictures would help also, at "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures," thread
