    Fishy smelling vent discharge

    Lately I've noticed my runner Gabby has a vent discharge after she poops that looks like raw egg whites. Today I touched it (yuck) and smelled it (more yuck) and noticed it smells a little fishy (even more yuck). I don't go around smelling vents/discharge so I don't know if that's normal...

    Happy Hatchday!

    A year ago today, my first duck ever, Gabby, hatched at Hoover's hatchery, joined shortly by her boyfriend Jabby. They made their way to TSC and were the last 2 ducklings in the bin when I found them. After they saw me, they started peep-peep-peeping, and didn't stop until I pulled my cart...

    Hemp Bedding for Ducks?

    Hi. I've been reading about hemp bedding and that it's supposed to last twice as long as pine shavings, hay or straw because it's so absorbent. All of the reviews are from chicken owners however - so wondering if any duck owners are using it and if you think it's worth a try?

    Pekin color question

    I finally got a pic to share of both my Pekins. Is it normal for color to vary so much? One is white (female) and one is yellow (male). They are not from the same parents, however they eat the exact same thing, have the same routine, get the same amount of sunlight, and they are close to same...

    Egg Size Question - Pekins

    My Pekin sometimes lays enormous eggs and, when she does, they are usually double yolks. I can’t find anything on the web to help me understand why this happens, if it’s abnormal, if there’s an underlying health issue and should I be concerned...? Pic comparing my Runner, Ancona and Pekin eggs...

    Protective Sweetheart

    Just had to share this. Pekin drakes get a lot of slack - sure they can be aggressive and rapists lol - but look at this darling standing guard over his girls today while they forage. You can only see one of the girls - the others are in the bushes. He’s done this all week. Wherever the girls...

    Drake ate oyster shell....

    I know Drakes aren't supposed to eat oyster shell but what happens if they do and how much is enough to hurt them? My drake ate oyster shell this morning - he's never done it before and I don't know why he decided to do it today...
