Question one: So does anyone know where I can order some seamless leg bands for ducks???
Question two: One duck was injured one week ago, (his little feets got cut up) so he was in the house with me for about a week, they were born in late april I believe. When I went to go put him back with the others, they seemed to get along fine, so I left them. Come back to check on them...they had ostracized him!! Beating him up, keeping him huddled in a corner out of their site. They didn't even want to see him, every time he tried to come out they chased him back or chased him down and proceeded to beat him up by slamming his head into any surface they could. They wouldn't even let him have access to food or water for the whole day. I had had enough. He came back inside with me. Well to try again, we have now put up a divider in their pen, they can see each other, but they other four can't reach him to bully him. He seemed happy to see them, wanted to join in their fun...they did not seem happy. Kept trying to climb the divider and push through it so they could beat him up again. The question is...will this work? Him spending some time with them, so they can see him and semi interact, and eventually be accepted back into their group? Or is he a doomed outcast??
