this is my first post so forgive my onslought of questions, I did try to look up the answers but nothing quite nailed it.
Okay so first, I have 4, 2 week pekin ducks who all seem happy and healthy except i just noticed the biggest one has has no down on his neck under his beak. Here is a photo:
any ideas what it could be from? i dont see any ducks peking it and it seems to be getting gradually worse. i did make up a batch of homemade electolites so hopefully that helps.
2nd what is a good duck book?
we have them on duck starter feed from tsc and it says complete but i did motice others mention adding brewers yeast, what is that and should i add it?
one more thing, if i want to change their diet to organic should i do it gradually? any recommended feed for the next phase, grower i think it would be called.
thanks for your help this is my first go and im getting chickens in june (so i could plan) but my boyfriend suprised me with these four babies and although im thrilled i havent been able to do a whole lot of reading yet.
