Sick duck

post #1 of 3
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 starter feed and i have fed them cucumber before in small bites. If anyone knows anything that can help please do!! Thank you!

The older they get the more their going to poo.  Have you been giving them grit?  If they eat something besides the starter food they need grit.  Green poo is when you have to worry.
