    My ducks are dying randomly

    my concern is the bedding. if your using hay or straw it could be moldy. if so clean it out and use wood chips. they don't mold and stay dry longer. I lost a nesting goose to grass clippings my son put in the coop. it ate some after it molded and died a couple days later.

    very interesting thread. two weeks ago we had a fox strike in broad daylight in a rain storm around 4:00 in the afternoon. two ducks got bit. we managed to chase the foxes off long enough to round up all the birds and get the gun out. my son took a shot at one but it ran away( 90 yard shot). in...

    Inheriting Geese and clueless to care and keeping of Geese

    well since the winter is light down your way I suspect you will hear the fighting that come with mating season. if they are all ganders then it will start sounding like the WWE set up shop in the back yard. my males get to fighting and the girls all squawk like cheerleaders at a football game...

    Rain barrels and my Ducks/Goose

    lucky for you its not shingles or galvanized. they give off stuff that can kill birds. galvanized is the worst as it gives off zinc oxide. in high concentrations its real bad. painted roofs are much better. they tend to be baked enamel and don't give off toxins. your wood shingles sound like...

    Inheriting Geese and clueless to care and keeping of Geese

    sounds like you need to train them to walk on command. I use a couple sticks to guide them when young. about 4 foot long will do. hold them about 45* to your body out at the side. they normally turn away from the stick on one side or the other so reach forward with the right stick to go left and...

    Inheriting Geese and clueless to care and keeping of Geese

    well if its any help my geese don't like stairs. if you have and old ladder or some type of barrier to put around where you don't like them to go. I use a ladder when the barns open to keep them out. they look in but won't go through the rungs even though they would fit. I have a 8 x 6 shed I...

    Flooring for Ducks

    yes it will get mucky if it doesn't drain. I suggest a landscape fabric under the sand over gravel to let water out and let the sand stay dry.

    Limping duckling

    I have just the 16% layer pellets. they are eating the heck out of it. as for the latest on the bird, he seems to be a little better. the sore leg is moving some but is still swollen. the black mark is getting smaller from the neosporen. I tried to get him to settle down so I could look at it...

    Limping duck and barely walking

    well I set up the little tykes pool for him and his buddies, the rain should have it full by morning. when I went out tonight he was standing and moving but slowly. I didn't put any pressure on him, the issue seems to be a dominate duck in the other group of 3, as soon as I opened the gate to...

    Limping duck and barely walking

    My vet doesn't do farm animals, wouldn't even return my calls when my goose got sick. nobody around here does ducks & geese from what I'm finding. as for seperating him we have. he is hanging with his two buddies by his side. I tried putting him in the big pool yesterday and he jumped out. I put...

    Can pekins eat fish?

    you can treat the fish prior to feeding them to the ducks use Iodine free table salt. put in 1 teaspoon for ever gallon of water you keep them in, at the very least 24 hours. the salt breaks up parasites and bacteria that's common in fish from pet stores.
