    My three ducks were attacked tonite by a mink, my White Campbell is the only one that made it alive. She has four bite marks on her neck that were still bleeding, now cleaned, antibiotic ointment, and bandaged. She is in the garage being kept quiet. She ate a handful of peas, and drank some water. Can anyone tell me what else to do?! I feel so bad for her and am praying so makes it the night.

    She drank some water, laid an egg, and ate some more peas this AM!

    Sounds like you are doing what you can. I would keep her isolated and in a smaller space so she won't move very much and keep offering food and water. Hope she feels better and sorry for your loss!
