    We ordered 10 Pekin ducklings from Metzer Farms and just received them this morning, after a long 5 day journey in the mail from California to Ohio. They all appeared to be fine but 3/10 quickly (within the first hour) developed wry neck. One has already passed and 2 are looking to be headed in...

    Entry #2: Photography Taking pictures is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. I’m most definitely an amateur, but I have won several ribbons for my photography. Pets are by far my favorite subject to capture, and my own animals are the cutest models!:love

    Entry #1: My absolute favorite hobby is dancing! I started dance lessons at 2 years old, and could never get enough of it. This is my 19th year of dance, and my 5th year being a dance teacher and choreographer! I teach tap, jazz, ballet, hip hop, cheer dance, and lyrical, but tap is by far my...

    Mallards vs the cold

    Thanks everyone! I definitely don’t want to deal with shattered bulbs again so I’m going to try to avoid that route. It’s good to know to avoid shatter resistant bulbs, as I was looking into those. I’ll be sure to avoid them. Hopefully they stay warm with their straw then. It just makes me...

    Mallards vs the cold

Their coop as well as their outside run is covered in straw, though it’s hard to keep up with the straw outside...

    Shoes for ducks?

    Has anyone used duck shoes to prevent frost bite in the winter? If so, how’d it work? I know they are typically used when curing Bumblefoot and such, but I have a pair of mallards who demand to stay out in the winter and do not want to deal with frostbite.

    My New Additions! Pics included

    So cute!! Congrats!!:love:love:love Like everyone else has stated, keep a very close eye on dad. My drake was great with his babies until the day the ducklings turned 6 weeks old. He then attacked one and plucked out nearly all of it’s feathers.
