I've got two runner ducks, a male blue and a female fawn. They are about 2.5 weeks old, growing fast and very entertaining.
Since I got them, the male prefers to sit more often then not, and it also seems like it doesn't stand upright as much as the female. Within the last week it's had a pretty shaky leg when standing. I'm wondering if there's anything that can and should be done.
They are being fed an organic chick starter from my feed store and they reccomended 2 tpsp of Brewers yeast per cup of food, which they have been getting.
Is that a proper dosage?
Also, yesterday I picked up one more newly hatched blue female runner and I tried to put them in the same brooder but the two older ones were pretty aggressive towards it. I attempted to make a chicken wire barrier in the brooder but one of them kept harassing the little one, biting it's bill and pulling its head through the chicken wire.
I went and bought a second lamp and set up a brooder and am hoping I will be able to house them together when the little one gets bigger. Is the aggressive behavior normal? Any tips on introducing the new one?
Thanks for any assistance
