    I just went to feed her and give her water and I noticed her right leg was behind her body and I touched her leg and thigh gently and I think she’s got a broken leg

    Any way you can get her to a vet?

    for those of you who know what happened, I just went to the vet today with my duckling and apparently the fox might of punctured her air sack there was a name for it but I forgot, the vet said she might survive if her body can heal itself over time the only thing is we couldn’t find a vet for all animals around us there was only one for cows and sheep but they still gave us information and a pain killer for her
