How old are my ducks?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I brought home a new pair of ducks a couple days ago and in the excitement I forgot to ask how old they are. Can anybody tell me roughly how old they are by looking? They are a magpie and white runner, both crested females.

Based on my memory of my runners, I would say between 1 and 2 weeks old.

 

Cute little pumpkins!

Please consider adopting rescued ducks.

People often ask if they should "put down" a bird that has suffered major injuries.  In my experience, birds appreciate the opportunity to recover.  Ducks have an amazing ability to heal, even from injuries that appear to be catastrophic.
