    Ducks quacking at night

    The poison will not be inside with the ducks. I trapped over 60 rats last summer, poison is the only option. The drakes aren't the problem. I have 4 drakes and 13 ducks and only the ducks are quacking...actually lately the ducks are the ones fighting.

    Loud Broody Fighting Ducks

    I have 17 ducks all different kinds, 4 drakes in the flock and they are getting on my last nerves. They are up at the crack of dawn quacking their heads off for no reason, the broody crested runs around like an insane women and attacks all the other ducks which then nearly creates an all out...

    Aggressive Runners Usual?

    You'll need to get more ducks or separate the males until the are settled. I had to separate my Male Runner from my Blue Swede as the runner would do all he could to chase down the swede and chew on his neck. It was bad but not unexpected. I ended up separating the pen and kept the two...

    Fertilized duck eggs disappearing

    Do you have a sneaky dog? Mine goes in and steals the eggs right out from under them. It could be anything but probably something small or else I'd assume they'd rather eat the duck. I wouldn't lock her up either. If she wants to sit she will....maybe tighten up the security around the...

    Swede Duck has gone Cuckoo!

    Thanks for the reply.... Those were my thoughts at first, however...she doesn't sit on her nest at all. She built one, and pretty much leaves it and wanders around with all the others. My W.H. drake pokes at her, but doesn't try to breed with her. It's almost like he's annoyed at her...

    Hi All, My Indian Runner male is completely obsessed with attacking my Blue Swede drake to the point where all he does is v-line straight to him to fight. I expected some fighting but it seems a little over the top.... I have them separated in their pen and at night but I want to let them...

    Duck drowned in its own pool

    I had a Welshy who I had to chase out of the pond once. She couldn't get out which wasn't normal considering their were rocksto get out and the depth was shallow enough to stand. She died the next day. I'm quite certain if I didn't get her out of the pond she would have died in the pond...

    Week-old Ducks *still* eating pine shavings

    Are you using the fine pine shavings or course. I only use the course to prevent this if they do decide to eat the shavings. Have you let them get used to the pine shavings? I wouldn't assume they are eating them. Even my grown ducks rush into their hut after I put down new shavings to dig...

    Frostbitten duck feet? please help!!

    It was my understanding that ducks can withstand some pretty cold temperatures. I live in MA and I too have been dealing with the bitter cold this week. My ducks have been outside the entire time and retreat to their hut for the night. Do you have plenty of bedding for them? I've put extra...
