    Ducks were out in my yard and one of my girls froze and had trouble getting up. I picked her up and examined her feet.
    She has a puncture wound that does go through her foot. How do I treat this? Thanks.

    you don't.It should heal itself.Mine had a hole from a pellet shot.healed and cannot see it now.

    She will walk around like she broke her foot for a while,but ducks heal quick.Might be good to isolate her for a week or so.

    She'll be fine :) Some people do that to webbed feet to mark them too [​IMG]
