New duck mom!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! I got my first ducks on Thursday and had a bad experience with them being sent to me. Many did not make it sad.png but found a local source and now have 12 ducks who seem to be doing well! One makes me nervous with what seems to be a hurt leg.

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but definitely post on our Duck section in Other BackYard Poultry under the Forum at the top of the page and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

Please do check out the duck threads.  Ducklings especially  - may have a niacin deficiency  which causes issue with their mobility.

Thank you for the welcome! I posted in the duck section. I attached the picture of the hurt foot here as well. If you have any ideas I would love to hear!
Thank you again!

You're welcome. I hope your duck's foot is better soon.

I hope you get some answers about your duck's foot...it looks swollen. Has it always looked like that?

 

If you received dead ducklings from a hatchery, most will give you a refund or credit for the lost ones. I hope you called them.

Hello!

Welcome to BYC and the coop! There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around BYC. Good luck with your baby.

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
