I am writing this with such a heavy heart. :-( I have two border collies that watch out over the farm and let me know if there is a coyote lurking and generally just keep everyone safe. This morning about 5 o'clock, my neighbor came to wake me up to let me know that my dogs had broken into the coop and were after my ducks. I don't know what came over them, they have never done this before and it isn't like them..... I just don't understand. To my dismay, my Pekin drake had defended the rest of the girls and taken some pretty bad battle scars. My female Pekin took on some pretty good bites as well. They had sustained most of the attack. I have pulled them out and put them into an old dog crate that had stored. It has a divider wall so they cannot try to clean each other but they can be next to each other. They have been together since birth and are VERY bonded. I irragated the wounds, but some are pretty deep. They both have food and water in their little area and she seems to be doing okay. She is sitting up and holding her head and I think time will heal her up. My drake though is not doing as well. He is laying, will stand up, but I can tell he is hurting. He will pick his head up and responds to me when I talk to him, but I don't know what to do. I don't want to put them on bedding, I'm afraid it isn't sterile enough. I don't know what to put under them besides towels. Any advice is welcome. Thanks to all!!!
