Sick ducks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have 2 ducks roughly 5 weeks old and one of them seems sick. I think it may just be me freaking out for no reason but I've seen his/her eyes look a little red and now it's poo is very runny and orangish yellow. And it's like projectile. (I know gross info) I'm just not sure if its right this is my first time owning ducks. They have gotten the normal chick feed and i have fed them cucumber before in small bites. If anyone knows anything that can help please do!! Thank you!

I'm sorry I don't know anything about ducks.  I don't even know if they are supposed to eat chick feed.  Is this medicated chick feed,  - that may be something they shouldn't have.

 

Can you get any help from the seller? Please post asap on the "Duck thread,"  and also  "Emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures, "thread

Hello, Also new here. I have a pekin who went limp. Caught her and seen she had swelling in her foot and bumble foot. Soaked and pulled off the scabs and treated with iodine and vetericyn. Today I went out there to soak her again and foot is twice as big and has green smelly poop
