Dirty pekin!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have two 5 week old Pekin ducklings. Both of them absolutely love the water and especially the mud. They both play in the mud but one gets exceptionally dirty and it looks like when she poops it stays on her bottom. I'm a little concerned but I think she may just be a dirty duck. We think that one of them is a boy and one is a girl. The one that we think is the girl is the smaller one and I hope that nothing is wrong with her and that she may just be a little lazy. If anyone has any advice I really appreciate it.

If you give her some bath time, does she clean up?

If her vent is not fairly clean, I wonder if she could benefit from some probiotics.

 

What do they eat, and how often?  Ducklings need food with water 24/7.

Please PM me, or use @Amiga in the message if you would like to hear from me soon.

Yeah actually, her vent is pretty dirty as well. Both of the ducks have food and water available at the same time but we are feeding them chicken feed since they live with chickens.
