    Broken bill

    I've called several local vets and none near me so far deal with birds. Thanks for the help. I will get him some moist food and hopefully he will heal up and be okay.

    Broken bill

    Thank you for your insight. I was really concerned about him. I will get his a bowl and moisten his food to help him. Is this kind if injury painful to him? I dont want him to be hurting. And can you give a duck pain meds of any kind if it is?

    Broken bill

    So found my duck this morning has a broken top bill. Will he be okay like this? I'm not sure how it happened. Worried about his health.

    Chicken and duck mom.

    I joined this page because I recently decided to add a couple of ducks to my hen house. Dont ask me why 😆 The group has been very helpful so far with some of my questions and concerns on raising ducks. I've had my chickens this time for about three years. We had a flock a few years ago but got...

    A little duck help....

    Hopefully the dog is ok The dog is okay. She's a large dog and when the duck gets too rowdy she just puts her paw on him. Lol Hopefully she does not end up hurting him. So far she's been gentle but I worry that could change.

    Yes he is less than a year old. I figured it was teenage hormones acting up. He is not overly aggressive at the moment but I will keep an eye on things to make sure everyone is okay. So far he ignores the female duck but she's only been here a couple of days.

    A little duck help....

    I thought the head bobbing just said they were happy 😂 I didn't realize it was a mating call. He is quite expressive and "talks" to us a lot. I've really enjoyed him, but am worried the dog will hurt him when she gets tired of his attentions. Do they go into season or is this a normal every day...

    Pretty sure its a boy based on his voice and curly tail feather. The hubby does not want any more feathered friends but maybe I can sneak a couple more girls into the coop 😉 Thanks for all the responses it was very helpful.

    Thank you for the response. My poor Elle Mae is not sure how to deal with the duck trying to jump on her back. 😅 So far she has been very tolerant. I did hope there was some way to divert his unwanted attentions.

    Love this. I did something similar when I added 2 baby ducks to my flock. It worked out very well. Although I have a much smaller run than this I was able to section off a corner for the babies and they grew up in full view of the grown birds. I did still use a heat lamp instead of a heating...

    A little duck help....

    So I decided to add a couple of ducks to my backyard flock. I got 2 as babies but one died early. That left my cayuga to be raised alone. He befriended the dog and follows her around, but recently it seems he is trying to mate the dog. I just went an got a female pekin duck to add to his "flock"...
