Hi, You might remember us posting a while back about a duck (Dagoo) with muscle spasms/seeming neurological issues. After a few vet visits we got her to an avian specialist today. The working theory (to be confirmed or otherwise by xray tomorrow) is that she has a displaced or malformed disk in her back that's been pressing on her spine and causing nerve damage, resulting in where she is now - unable to walk/swim properly and in a lot of distress. While if confirmed we're going to see how she responds to a specialist anti-inflammatory treatment, the vet only holds a little hope that she's recover much use of her legs and we may need to consider putting her down. So that's the context of this question - she's one of a pair (along with three chickens they roam with) - if the worst happens and we have to put her down, should we get another couple of khaki campbells as soon as possible to keep our remaining girl company, or should we wait a while and give her space to get used to the absence? If we do get a couple more (or maybe three for an even number) is there anything we should do/look out for in terms of introductions and pecking order when it comes to ducks to ensure they accept each other?
