Hey guys, we have discovered our duck Bean has an injury to her foot, right at the ankle. It's super swollen and I'm not 100% sure what to do right now because I haven't been able to find anything about it in my copy of Storey's guide to raising ducks.
Her non-swollen foot is pictured first for comparison

I'm wondering if she possibly broke it? Here are pictures, and it's just the one ankle swollen. We had her inside overnight in our bathtub with enough water so that she was floating and keeping weight off of it, also in part to soak it so we could find any injuries that needed sterilized. She has been favoring that foot since yesterday evening, and we cant find any cuts or sores around it to indicate an injury.

Much better! We've found out she just managed to sprain it. It's way less swollen now that it was before, and she's been enjoying having time inside being spoiled. We've gone around outside fixing most areas we can think of that may have been the cause of the sprain to prevent this from hapening again

Yes! Her ankle is almost back to it's normal state already! It's still a tiny bit swollen compared to what it was and she is definitely still favoring that foot so we're keeping her inside till it's fully healed. I just took a picture oh how it is now when she was standing on both feet preening.
