Pekin is under the weather

  1. Jeniep
    :(I have 14 ducks and one of my male Pekins is not well. I have had him for 3 years and not sure how long he was here before we took over. He is eating and I have seen him in the pond but very infrequently. He acts so very tired and sleeps a lot. He had an injured leg a few weeks ago and I confined him for ten days. He is now walking OK but still a little gimpy, but he has always been a little gimpy. He stays huddle on the grass while the others pick bogs and so forth. Any ideas?

    I don't know much about ducks, but if I were you I would post in the Duck forum: http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks
    Folks there should know a lot more about your sick duck, I hope your Pekin gets better!
