Please help me. My ducks are dying and I have no idea why. Two days ago we found one of our khaki campbells dead. She was curled up and had been fine that morning. I couldn't think of why she died and I thought it may have been from an accident since it was so windy that day.
Today when I came home my cayuga was very listless and had trouble walking. This was at 5:00pm. I took her inside and put her in a warm bath and she drank a little. I sprinkled lettuce in the bath and she dabbed at it but didn't eat. I put her in a dog crate and watched her and placed a bowl of water next to her. She lay there slightly shakey with her head getting lower and lower. When she lay like that it looked like she was dead so I'd stroke her and put her in my lap to keep her awake. I thought if she fell asleep she would never wake up.
At 5:40 I drew her another bath to get her to drink. Before I put her in it she started making muffled quack noises. Her bill opened and her jaw moved horizontally so her top bill and bottom bill were not aligned. She started seizing and I put her in the water holding her. She continued to seize, her neck got stiff and craned toward the water. She started flapping her wings and then she was gone.
I am SO sick about two of my ducks dying in two days. I have two left and have NO idea what is going on. The two I have left look fine but so did my campbell and cayuga. It took my cayuga only 40 minutes to die.
Does this sound like anything? Please help me.
