    I had ducks for a lil and You'd think with the constant wetness that those cute buggers add would water down the nitrogen in the bedding. It's worth an experiment to see how it works out.

    Got a call back from the vet, Sally. He said that I will know best what to do, if it comes to killing her, but for now, if I use a support, make sure to check for breast blisters. Mostly, nothing new gained. From nursing school, I know all too well what pressure sores can do (they can KILL a person). But, he was friendly and at least backed me up and gave me some support.

    I forget his name, but he was the avian vet. The problem is mostly the size of the girl. He said I was doing the right thing to check other options besides just killing her, but it didn't look good, because of where the break is and her weight. Basically, he said to try my method (setting it ad keeping her in a sling or contraption, make sure EVERYONE has enough calcium, make sure she can access feed and water and watch for shock, though since she's large and currently inside, he said I shouldn't worry about that. But, he said if she doesn't eat or drink, then I should put her down. :(
