    Not until he had the pox. I had a necropsy done on one of my deceased chickens. He had pox and respiratory illness. What else can cause the walking issue?

    Need some wisdom

    I found an egg!!

    I have 4 female ducks. 3 pekin and 1 Muscovy. I found an egg Wednesday and another yesterday. I'm thinking it belongs to my Muscovy. How often do pekins and Muscovies lay? Will pekins lay this late or wait until spring? (They haven't started laying yet)

    Marek's incubation

    I didn't get them from a breeder.. I got them from a poultry mkt. Lesson learned. I have no idea where the pox came from but they are free ranged most of the day. He's the only one sick right now and he's been separated so it hopefully won't spread any further. I'm just glad I know how to treat...

    Marek's incubation

    I gave him 1cc (saw it on another thread) under his skin on the back of his neck and he started bleeding. Is that normal??
