Hi...I joined because I read info on here about ducks ad thought this was also for ducks...if not..just say so...anyway...we have 20 ducks and 2 geese. Awhile ago one duck went missing in the afternoon...we searched but figured it was a coyote. Then after dinner one night we came home to one that was tore up on her bottom side...through the muscle. We cleaned here up. And world for an hour...but she was fading fast...we raise these ducks for my hobby...not to eat...but can’t really afford to take it to the vet. We put het down. Then. Last Friday m baby goose was in the pond...the older ducks haven’t used our pond in weeks...the goose was hurt bad...her foot and ankle were shredded....I wrapped her and I did what I could until my husband got home. I did not want to lose another one..so we decided to amputate her leg from the knee down...is was her only shot..she’s doing great! But..the real question is....now none of the ducks use the pond. We realized we have snapping turtles. We caught a hug on Sunday. The shell was ten inches! We almost caught another turtle looks close to eight inches...and we threw back in that was inches because we that it was too small to cause harm...boy were we wrong. Please help me...how do I tell the ducks that we are making it are safe for them to swim.
