    Healthy diet for female Pekin ducks?

    All the times she was into the vet he never mentioned it as a problem. I hope it’s not!

    Healthy diet for female Pekin ducks?

    She’s been that way pretty much since she matured well over a year ago. Ugh, so many possible problems!

    Healthy diet for female Pekin ducks?

    I have two pekins who each way 10 pounds. One practically drags on the ground her carriage is so low, and one looks much slimmer and normal. I was so surprised to learn that they weighted the same!

    Duck missing feathers on lower back and skin turning green

    Maybe you should observe her and see how she reacts. She will quack or appear anxious if she's feeling lonely, and in that case you can add the female that seems least likely to pick at her and observe to see how that goes.

    One of my month and a half ducklings had bald spots on her sides... why??

    I'm so glad it's looking less raw! In a few weeks I bet she'll be as good as new. Nice job taking care of her!

    Duck missing feathers on lower back and skin turning green

    Until she heals you might want to figure out a way to separate the injured duck with a female friend. I have a situation with female ducks where one has her feathers pulled and I am having to keep them apart unless I supervise. It's a hassle but it's the only way for me to protect her for now

    Just some cute duck videos.

    My pekins Penny and Puddles coming out of the bathroom by themselves because they couldn't wait for transport. Puddles is wearing hobbles as she was getting over splay-leg. I love their baby voices!

    Did you separate all the females from the males? She will need company and there won't be enough females for the males if you take her out.

    One of my two ducks died. PLEASE HELP ME

    Maybe you should rehome your lone duck to someone who keeps a local flock. Ducks need company.

    I agree, what's not to love about ducks - especially pekins!! When I was a kid I had a female pekin and male mallard and he used to also chase me and bite me - I guess protecting his female. Maybe yours will tame down a bit when you have them all together. Sounds like you have a good plan for...

    Well she's beautiful, and I understand completely. My ducks are pets and I don't have the heart to get rid of my Tuppins. I'm willing to put in the work to monitor them, even though I complain about it. I'm not sure what's driving the behavior for your ducks since they're a little young for...

    I'm sorry - don't let her ruin your bed! If you know someone else who keeps ducks maybe you will want to end up rehoming the feather-puller. With different ducks she might behave totally different. My pekin has never pulled a feather from my welsh harlequins - only the other pekins. I have...

    Oops - my first comment "isn't there something you can get" I meant to delete. Seems like she might just need a little dab of the ointment at first then you can just let it heal on its own. The main thing is keeping her away from the feather-puller. Sorry you're having to deal with this...
