One of my Appleyard ducks tripped while leaving the night run this AM. Poor thing was screaming about how much pain she was in. I picked her up and her leg hung limp. She couldn't stand up. I set her on the ground to wait for me while I finished caring for the rabbits. Since I wasn't paying any attention to all of her drama, she got up and walked away. There is no point in dying melodramatically if nobody is paying any attention or giving any sympathy.
