Sunken Chest?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok I may be getting a little paranoid over my ducks health but as I've never had any before I need all the help I can get lol! My daughter pointed out to me that there is a sunken short 'line' down the front of Mylo's chest, is this a normal thing? Will try to get a pic after hurricane Abigail blows over!

Sounds like the normal duck "cleavage" line to me. Just a natural part in their feathers there that you can sometimes see. Nothing to worry about. :)

I will admit the front end of a duck can keep you guessing.  From the crease down the chest to the opposite looking keel to the huge hanging crop after a gluttony binge, I have spent a lot of time concerned for my flock.  I am sure @Orca5094 is right, but that pic would allow others to weigh in if it was something unusual. (Plus everybody loves duck pics :D)
