Normal or not?

post #1 of 3

I just put my ducks outside in their new pen 2 days ago. Well now im seeing that one has the runs which is black looking. Is this normal?

Keep an eye on them.  The black could be from foraging in soil.

 

Can they get to soil in their pen?

 

Sometimes they get into something not so healthy.  So if they show any signs of being not quite right, you may want to add food grade activated charcoal powder to their water - about a teaspoon per pint.  It absorbs toxins.
