Hey guys! I have a white female pekin duck who has been limping for a few days from all the attention she has been receiving from the males. Poor gal. However, last night one of the dogs got too excited and she got caught up and ended up with a puncture wound on her chest (which I treated with a warm bath, gauze pad taped around her, and separate sleeping conditions away from the others), but this morning I noticed she is unable to put her foot down. She can barely walk or stand. She looks to be in some pain when she tries to walk, and this is making me think she has a possible broken leg, or a really bad sprain. I haven't been able to pick her up yet to examine her, but what exactly should I be looking for when it comes to a broken leg? I know to use a splint, but any information I could get to help me with her would be greatly appreciated. I'm rather fond of the ol' gal. Thanks!
