    Duck pen smell!

    Hello, I have my duck pen on cement with a thick layer of straw. When it gets wet, it gets this strong swamp like smell and it can be bad. Does anyone know a way to help this? Maybe something different than straw? Do coop deodorizers really work? Thanks!

    Runner duckling laying down a lot

    Do her legs shake at all while standing or before laying down? Because my runner duck's legs shook like crazy for about 2 weeks when she was 3-4 weeks old.
