    I normally don't put water inside their house overnight because obviously way to messy... but when it's probably 85 degrees inside their house right now, I wonder if I should? I converted a beautiful Amish playhouse into duckhouse by adding 9 more windows (it came with 2) and drilled a couple...

    I am not sure if she/he is a female Pilgrim goose (like I was told by the breeder I got my goslings from) or if she/he could be a toulouse gander?? Either way, I can't keep her/him with my other 2 Pilgrim geese (gander and goose) She/he is certainly acting like a gander. Beautiful and healthy...

    Buttercup is one of my 9.5 month old blue runner ducks, I'm trying to figure out if she has wetfeather or not, if it's from parasites or not, and did she bite off the tips of some of her own feathers? I have her inside now, and I gave her a soap-foamy massage bath with dawn, rinsed well, and...

    what kind of wheat and where to buy (for my geese)

    I read about adding wheat to their diet, especially now that it's winter. I don't see it for sale in the feed stores near me. Online I found "Hard Red Winter Wheat Berries" is this the right thing to buy? There is also "Organic, Whole Grain, Hard Red Spring Wheat" I am leaning towards buying...

    6x8 shed Duck house is on blocks a foot high, is it ok to let them go under there or should I close off the space with hardware cloth?

    We converted a beautiful Amish playhouse/shed into our duck house. At first it was only 6 inches off the ground and I had closed off all the sides with boards, but after a few months a creature (likely was a rat) moved in underneath. After setting traps every night and filling tunnels and holes...
