    A Concerning Egg Lay

    Thanks for the replies! I assume most of them lay throughout the night, I let them out at 7am and usually only one duck is still nesting and the others are done (I have 7 layers) I did a quick glance at her vent and it was dilated a bit which is expected but will definitely do another look again...

    A Concerning Egg Lay

    She is an Indian runner duck, i hope it was just a stuck egg but the said egg was on the smaller side compared to past eggs.

    A Concerning Egg Lay

    Tonight when I went out to close up the coop, I walked in on one of my females was jerking back and forward with her head down towards her body. It looked like she was having a seizure or choking so I was checking her out but then she just dropped an egg right on my lap. She seemed really dazed...

    Is this frost bite??

    Hi! As in the picture, I found this on the bottom of one of my drakes feet but I'm having a hard time figuring out what is wrong, whether it's frostbite or bumblefoot. I found that other ducks in the flock also developed these pale pressure point marks on their feet so I assumed it was normal...

    Angel Wing or Just a Short Duck?

    Hi! I have this one female duck that has some odd-placed feathers and I can't tell if it's because of her height or if its something else like angel wing. She has always been the shortest and her wings are a little bit longer than her body so I thought her feathers were forced to grow a little...

    Moving a female pheasant a pen over?

    I'm not sure on their exact age or if they were raised together but I bought them off of someone who didn't want to keep their birds anymore, all 4 goldens were already housed together when I bought them

    Moving a female pheasant a pen over?

    Hi, I tried looking this up but couldn't find anything so I apologize if there are threads like this. I'm just starting to get into birds and I have a few pheasants and I reached a dilemma. I had a pair of red golden pheasants and the female unfortunately passed away due to predator and the...

    Duck foot problem?

    I was able to recover a video of her walking a week ago when the slight limp started. I found an old phone that works so hopefully ill get a new video of her once they wake up from their nap (It's the leg with the blue band - her right leg)

    Duck foot problem?

    I dropped my phone in their pool yesterday so it might take some time till I can get a video. The best way I could describe it like a soldier marching when they kick their legs straight out and her body is slanted to one side from holding her heel up

    Duck foot problem?

    So I've been giving her liquid b complex for about 6 days now but I haven't noticed any changes, she still has her slight limp and still holds her foot up while walking/standing. But thankfully it doesn't seem to be getting worse. Should I keep up with the vit B or could this be something else...

    Duck foot problem?

    Here are some photos from today. She starting to get a slight limp but can still walk and run around with the other ducks. Couldn't find any thorns or cuts so I'll definitely try the vit b complex thanks for the suggestion

    Duck foot problem?

    I'll pick up some and give it a try. Should i stop/lower the niacin dose while giving this? A few months ago i came in contact with an avian vet about the other duck and it has more of an issue with how its hip formed in the egg so i don't think these cases are related

    Duck foot problem?

    Hi! this is my first time raising ducks and got 9 indian runners. I noticed that one of the females (grumpy) started walking funny with her right leg, she would often kick it forward more than her other leg and recently started to hold the back part of her foot up while walking and standing. I...
