    Duckling with Crumpled Foot

    I just had a hatch of Saxony ducks hatch out yesterday, but this morning I noticed the smallest has one foot crumpled up so that when he walks he walks on his knuckles. When I am holding him I can stretch out his foot normally and his toes are only a little crooked. Is there some type of brace...

    Angel Wing? :(

    I just got my first duck a little over a month ago as a 4 day old. Petrie, a Black East Indie (probably a drake), is about 5 weeks old and I'm starting to think he has angel wing He's on 20% grower and has been taken outside many times for bugs. I know that angel wing is caused by too much...

    Call Ducks?

    I have heard that Call Ducks are the loudest of all ducks, the females anyway. So how loud are they compared to a rooster? When are they loud? All day, or only when they lay an egg? Thanks

    Cockerel Limping

    My young d'Uccle cockerel is limping pretty badly. I have him in a crate in my mud room right now but when he was outside in the coop he would not get on the roost. I have inspected both legs pretty good and he has not shown any signs of pain when I poke, pull, and prod them. I don't see...

    Poultry Shipping Requirements?

    I have never shipped eggs, chicks, or adult birds before and I was wondering what the "requirements" were. I've searched the forum, but couldn't really find anything on anypaper work you have to do or have BEFORE you ship. Do you have to be NPIP certified to ship anything? I know there are lots...

    Ivermectin Dosage?

    I have never wormed my birds, but I figured that it would be a good idea to treat them once or twice a year. I really didn't want to get the kind you put in the water so i got "Privermectin Pour-On for Cattle". I've read certain posts that say that 3 drops are a good dosage for average sized...

    Very Swollen Eye :(

    One of my Bantam Pullets suddenly got a swollen eye about 3 days ago and it's getting worse and worse I was looking at previous threads, but none of them seemed to match her symptoms. Her eye had no discharge or bubbles before it swelled shut completely. I also noticed that her whole skull...

    Is Something Wrong?

    I've noticed that a few of my young cockerels that are between 4-5 months start to develop funny colored hackle feather. It's usually a silver almost like Birchin and sometimes a dark mahogany. My birds are Blue and Black so it's pretty noticeable if it happens. I don't have this problem in any...

    I haven't wormed my chickens this year, but I suspect that they are needing it. For those very experienced in poultry, what do you find is the best medication for deworming. Thanks in advance!
