Yes, an adult drake.
Okay, sorry about the other post, it was confusing and I was very upset. We mixed up some yeast in some good drinking water (the water we drink) and put an egg yolk in the mix and mixed it up and gave it to all of them and when I left they were drinking it. Hopefully that will help. Since my Call ducks can fly we do not really mess with them a whole lot as they are not the friendliest ducks we do not take them to the garden with us as they will run off, unlike the ducklings. However, we are going to clip their wings tomarrow and then start training them how to eat bugs. I do not think they've ever eaten one. I researched a bit about the 'stargazing' thing, and since we wil go to TSC tomarrow I'm going to look around and see if they have any of the medicine they need. Please keep your finger's crossed for my boy, Daffy!
Oh, if I start mixing yeast into their crumbles will that take care of the problem, or do I also need to give them water with medications in it? They have a kitty pool filled up with water in their run, and I usually do not give them water at night as they usually just spill it. Also, can I go ahead and start giving the ducklings yeast in their food?
One more thing while we are on the topic of feeding/watering. I have been giving my ducklings a little bit of ACV in their water, I do the same for my baby chicks, ACV doesn't hurt the ducks will it? It's supposed to be very good for just about everything. I just wondered about it as I'd been giving them some.
Thanks ahead of time, and sorry for all the questions. : )
OH, forgot tot mention my addiction got the better of me today and I brought home six new ducklings. Awwwww
