I am thinking of giving him a few more days in there while they, yes they do, squabble at the fence. It's cold and very windy today and it was easier for...

    How to (and should I) introduce 1 new drake to established flock of 10 lady ducks

    Duck Eye Bloody now after 2 uses Terramycin for bubbly eye !!

    I wanted to add that I was afraid to use the terramycin tonight,, because maybe it caused the bleeding? should I still apply it anyway? I wonder if the blood was part of the healing process?
