    SNOW

    So ducks are smart enough to put themselves away in their coops if their feet are cold? My husband was worried they weren’t because they were staying out in it and their feet were getting red. They have a large enclosure with their coops inside so if they wanted to get out of the snow they...

    Hi everyone! Please give me to low down on having a flock and getting snow? Is snow unsafe for ducks to be in? Thanks!!!

    Using Posion for Mice

    That’s why I was asking. We bought snap traps the other night and they’re all snapped but no mice in them! My husband said we’re going to have to get the sticky traps but I really don’t want to do that to the poor little mice! So I thought I’d ask other’s opinions. The mice are in our home. I...

    Using Posion for Mice

    Hello, We have always had mice issues in our home but this is our first year with a backyard flock. We originally tried the normal traps but the mice always outsmart them. We do not want to use the sticky traps because they are very cruel. We have a pest company and used posion this past year...

    MALLARD THREAD...not rouens, Mallards!

    We checked her feet. And she’s missing a toe so she’s a mallard!

    Will my muscoveies ever stop being a-holes?

    We’ll definitely look into more ducklings (as well as chicks because we need 8 more hens for our rooster) come Spring but she’ll have to make due with what she’s got now and that’s two muscovies & two WH’s. I really think she’s just still hurting from her sister disappearing and leaving her so...

    Will my muscoveies ever stop being a-holes?

    Honestly she has lots of places to hide with all the coops in there. She just chooses to stay near the muscovies, she is somewhat bonded to them even though they’re mean to her. We’ll just have to see how it goes! Thanks so much for all your help! I looked into mallards from Metzer farms. So I...

    Will my muscoveies ever stop being a-holes?

    Yeah, I guess we could try that. We’re just hoping they can eventually get along. It’s a short week this week, we’re going to let them out tomorrow and see how it goes. It’s a pretty large enclosure so everyone has plenty of space if they need to get away. Our female Muscovy just follows shadow...

    Will my muscoveies ever stop being a-holes?

    She does try to fly away, and she’s flown into the bird netting quite a few times since we put it up on Saturday. I think she’s learned her lesson now. Should we put our Muscovy in the coop or keep our mallard in the coop for her own safety? I’m not sure what to do because our male Muscovy has...

    Will my muscoveies ever stop being a-holes?

    So we were outside all day together with everyone finishing their enclosure. Today it appeared that our female Muscovy is the one who has the biggest issues with Shadow. Our male and Shadow were down in the creek for most of the day together foraging and swimming without any issues AT ALL! The...

    Will my muscoveies ever stop being a-holes?

    Hi there! So I have a small flock, my first two ducks were muscovies (although we bought them under the impression they were Pekins) we love them. We love their personalities and how unquie they are. But they’re so so so so mean to our lone Rouen (or mallard, we aren’t sure what she is now), her...

    MALLARD THREAD...not rouens, Mallards!

    This is my duck Shadow. We bought her and her sister Spunky at Tractor Supply this summer. (Unfortunately Spunky was taken by a hawk) We didn’t know what breed they were when we got them. At first we thought they were a mix breed of Pekin and Khaki. We are new to owning ducks, and hadn’t done...

    HELLPPP!

    Here’s some recent photos of my Shadow! I was trying to get a photo to show her size. The chickens in the one picture are around the same age as her. 16ish weeks. And then the other photo my boot is kinda in it! I wish I got one with her near my WH ducks. They are almost 9 weeks old and much...

    HELLPPP!

    She flys all the time. She’s about 15 weeks old, and she’s so tiny and from what I’ve seen Rouens get pretty large. I’ll have to take a more recent picture this weekend. One day she flew up way high in the sky and my husband said she looked like a wild duck because she was so high.

    HELLPPP!

    This isn’t my most recent picture, but I don’t have any clear super recent pictures of her. But she’s still about this size maybe a tiny bit bigger. I read something about one strip on the eye. And I went back to their duckling pictures and they had one definite strip but a faint second one...

    HELLPPP!

    She’ll have two more duck friends when the Welsh Harliquins move outside, even though she’s not a huge fan of them. I would like to get more Rouens next year, but we couldn’t do anything about the timing of her sister being taken. It was very sad for her and us. How big is your mallard? And is...

    HELLPPP!

    I just assumed he meant rooster as in a male duck knowing I was talking about ducks. They are muscovies so my male has some pretty sharp and long talons. Our net for our new enclosure will be here today, and once we get it up and a door on it, they will be able to come out of their coops...

    HELLPPP!

    This is the only ointment we have at the house. Doesn’t say anything about pain relief but I just wanted to ask before using it!

    HELLPPP!

    We got our muscovies first, they are a few months older than our Rouen. They don’t hurt her, but will push her away from them if they don’t want her so close and they may nip at her sometimes but the do allow her to hang out around them since she’s all alone since her sister was taken. We have...
