    It appears we have an injured leg. Our duck wont bear much weight on it if any. However she swims ok for a bit. We dont know what happened but it appears she was in the wrong place at the wrong time during a bit of roughhousing between my two dogs. My ducks are not afraid of the dogs and the dogs have not ever shown any aggression but they do get rough with eachother at times and we think the ducks were to close. NO blood or mass amount of missing feathers. She is eating just fine and drinking but we want to make sure we treat her appropriately. Her leg does not show any outward sign of injury nor does it appear broken but she wont walk on it.

    what is the procedure for this.. FYI the other duck was un injured aside from his friend being hurt he wont leave her side.

    also we have no idea if they are male or female.. so we assume.

    thanks
