    When will my sweet duck be back?

    Mocha is a Cayuga. She was very sweet. Calm, easy to hold, maybe a little sciddish. She built a beautiful nest and went broody for the first time. She wasn't great at having a nest, broke some eggs, knocked many out... but she was a good sitter and defender. Well... she wasn't a good mom first...

Then at around 6 months her voice changed, more high pitched. By 8 months she was coughing and at 10 she was gaping. We...

    I need to put my duck out of her misery

    We have ducks as pets. Our chronically ill cayuga, only a year old, has been dying since January. We have spent about a grand in vet care, getting her just better enough (she almost fully recovers each time) so she can deteriorate again. We have exhausted our options. The vet wants her to be in...

    Loud Duck in the Morning

    I got Cayugas because I heard they are quiet. One female is and the other is too except for in the morning. Every morning when the sun gets to a certain point she won't shut up. The only thing that helps is letting her out, in which she runs around the yard like a mad duck quacking as loud as...

    Honeysuckle? Any Consensus?

    I have 3 adult Cayugas. They free range and we have a large honeysuckle bush. They peck at it sometimes. Not often, never had a problem. We are about to add four muscovy ducklings to our flock. The current enclosure has a star jasmine growing up the kennel that provides shade. They dont touch...

In January she was open mouth breathing. We took her to ER, she was treated with antibiotics, antifungals, and dewormer. She got so bad she...

    Probable Aspergillus. Anyone with successful outcomes?

    Hi Unfortunately our 10 month old female Cayuga, Boston, has been having respiratory issues. She open mouth gasps for air each breath. She started doing this 4 days ago. Leading up to this, she had a high pitched occasional cough/sneeze for about a month. It wasn't very often so we weren't...

    Ducks Quacking

    Milkweed and Honesuckle

    We have 3 ducklings, Cayugas. We are about to move them outside. My backyard has a large honesuckle bush and I have several milkweed plants. Do I need to remove these plants?
