    What do you do when you have to go out of town for a few days?

    I did do a search on Bumble foot. Found nothing

    My peking has one or two large bumps on her foot. They are not bleeding. None of our vets in the area are waterfowl trained. How do you treat bumble foot at home?

    We just rescued a Northern Flicker

    Lately we had baby doves and robins hurt in our yard (beyond repair). This morning our neighbors were coming over to learn how to take care of our ducks while we are on vacation.

    Just a quick question about duck eggs.

    I have a broody Peking and I just candled the eggs. There are rings on the shell. A small one and a big one, it has a dark outline. Are these blood spots and the eggs are bad? They don't smell and other than the spots they look like normal development.

    Duck molting

    Is it common for Welsh Harlies and Pekin feathers do come in darker in the fall/winter molt than in the spring? My Pekin is almost a yellow not white. The Welsh look absolutly amazing with all their color, darker than what they were in the spring.

    Winter and ducks

    We live in Wisconsin. This will be our first winter with ducks. I was wondering if we needed to put in a heat source in the duck house? It's not insulated, but made out of plywood. The duck house has a door, should we keep them closed up when the temp drops or let them come and go. Anyone with...
