Hi, guys! Long time, no post! So, my sweet little duck was attacked by a dog un 2 Sundays ago (See AMAZING photos--I am SOO sorry these are gruesome, but I had to share this wonderful miracle with my BYC friends!) and I've kept her in our bathtub "hospital" to heal. She was so bad, I honestly didn't think she'd make it throughout the evening; but each morning, I'd peek my head around the corner and see her there-looking up at me! Hubby thought she certainly was a goner and even he admits it must be a miracle. Now, it's been a whole week and she's standing up, eating and chirping just as if nothing's happened. Her feathers, however, are a mess-and to look at her--just breaks my heart. I sprayed Granulex on her wounds and gave her a bit of anti-biotics in her water last week to fight off any infection. I clean out the tub each day, running water in it and filling it just enough to cover her legs. When she gets her feathers wet, though, the water does NOT just bead and run off of her like when she was outside. And her feathers seem to absorb the water and she feels almost greasy when I touch her. Is this because she's sick, not outside....or because I'm using tap water instead of her usual pond water to bathe her? Or am I just dumb and she needs a real bath? hehe Also, her poo has become runny now. Here they were as babies: And he/she's the big grey/white one on the right--digging in and so happy... Photos from the day I found her, October 19th: (I could only photograph her wing; was afraid to move her to photograph the chunk from her underside and from her leg missing. It tore me up just to look at the poor little thing.) Photo from October 21st: (Healing a little more.) Photo from today, October 28th: I've changed the little duck's name to Lazarus because we thought she was surely dead, but he rose again.... And she or he (don't know how to tell sex in ducks..hehe) wet. See how the water isn't beading-it's just soaking up in their feathers? Joselyn is here with Lazarus (hurt foot) and the same greasy feathers..... Any tips--Please, I would appreciate!
