My five-month old Pekin cut her left leg right above her "kneecap" (real technical, I know ) at about the 7 o'clock position (12 being the kneecap). I came out to her pen this morning and saw her sitting and not running out immediately as she normally does. After giving her a few prods, she stood up and kind of limped out, but being really careful about not putting any sort of pressure on that leg. I cleaned her up with warm soapy water and put some Neosporin on the wound, although it was scabbed over already. Worth a try, right? She's now in the house and I'm trying to keep her as dry as possible. Her injured leg is also much, much warmer than her good leg. Questions: 1. It had already scabbed over, which implies that it isn't a fresh wound? 2. I didn't see anything besides a cut on the leg. If a duck gets its leg cut and infected, will it be so painful it can't walk on it? 3. What if the leg is somehow broken? How can I check for that? 4. What else can I do? Thanks for all the help in advance.
