Care to tell us a little bit about yourself?
sure, I'm a first time owner of a duck! I rescued her from my back yard, she was tangled up in my fence only about 6wksold I'm thinking. She had no flight feathers and only down still on her back ..idk what happened to her before I found her but she's missing a lot of her bill like 2/3rds of itso she has a typical rubber duckie profile :-) very cute and doesn't seem to slow her down! Her tongue hangs out a lil... Also cute! I'm thinking she'sa runt cus she is so small. When found she had a prolapsed vent I thought she would not make it through the night so I brought her in and made her as comfortable as possible and the next morning she was still alive but in bad shape. The day after I look in the box and still she is alive so I stopped giving her crackers and bread and bought starter/grower feed and set her up a spot under my birds cage. She ate and drank everyday and got in our tubto swim but didn't float so shallow water only. After 2 mos she came into my living room and hung out w/meits been true love ever ssince! Between that time and now I've had to save her a few more times Lol ! She just turned 4 and I couldn't imagine not having her around.. She's so smart ..she's ppaper trained and doesn't have to wear a diaper much, she even listens to what u tell her to do. Most people think I'm nuts and have never heard of keeping a duck as a house pet..boy r they missing out on a great companion! Anyway I'm rambling on and on about her, I also have a 9yo son and3 other sweet birdie soul's Ilive close to wWashington DC . and I am very excited to be a part of this now I have people to talk to who can relate to my situation :-) very cool!! I found you guys while doing research on why my duck couldn't stand all of a sudden so I'm not glad for her situation but I'm glad I found all of you! If you want to know anything else please feel free to ask I'ma open book! Very nice to meet you all!

One of the earliest things I learned on here  was that ducks can suffer niacin deficiencies. I don't have ducks  but, I often tell people to post on the Duck thread and ask about niacin requirements.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :)

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Thanks for sharing.  Your duck sure is lucky you found her!  Who knows what would have happened to her otherwise.  Sounds like she gets along pretty well for missing that much of her bill.
