    Duck lost companion

    One of my two ducks was killed this evening by a raccoon that pinned it down. I'm at a loss with what to do with my other duck. I don't want to get rid of her but everything I've read suggests that I get another duck for her. I don't even know where to begin finding an adult female pekin duck...

    The Shovelbeaks are at it again

    My pekins love romaine lettuce. I had bought a 6 pack at Sam's and they have already eaten all of it, with the help of my rabbit and turtles. I just got a recall notice stating that the lettuce may be contaminated with E. coli? I can't seem to find anything online about how/if E. coli...

    Duck Bullying

    I have 2 female Pekin ducks. They are about 2 years old and they have free run of the backyard, a pond, toys, food, shade, and seem happy... most of the time. I've noticed recently that my one duck is bullying the other when it comes to sharing food. I give them lettuce and melon in the...
