    Grass help

    This is helpful thank you! Ive started draining their two pools overnight with leaving the hose in the pool and the other end down the drain which I think is going to help massively particularly in the wet months!

    Overmating

    It’s difficult because we actually have them as pets in a medium-large size garden so the thought of seperating them forever is heartbreaking. But I am noticing the other females resist him more because he’s only able to mate two of them and he is starting to catch around the one females eye...

    Overmating

    I always feel if I seperate him will he become more frustrated and the pounce on the females more once he’s with them? We do provide half an hour in the morning and an hour on the evening social time where they are monitored by me or my partner which helps

    Duck pecking order

    Hi everyone, our female duck was getting over mated and getting many eye injuries. Friday night we added two females all a year old, so now we have a ration of 3:1. Our drake is now mating with one of the new females which is great. The other new female keeps swaying her head in a low snake...

    Duck concerns

    Yes their are a few big stones/rocks, going to remove them tomorrow because I imagine she might be scraping her beak trying to get the bugs underneath. We have a kiddie pool and they mate in their most the time. We will definitely add another female soon, hope that eases. I thought seperating...

    Duck concerns

    Hi All, we have been really concerned about our female daisy this last week. She had an eye injury we think due to overmating ( we only have one drake and one duck, thinking of adding females) and her eye seemed worse the next day with more pink flesh and feathers removed. Since yesterday she...

    Beak concerns

    Hi All, I have been noticing some dark spots on our ducks beak at the top. It does at times look a little sore/red. The last few days she has developed a pink scab on the bottom of her beak, any advice?

    Duck eye injury

    Isaac just to check, could I do this with normal table/sea salt mixed with hot water and use a cotton pad to wipe over the cut?

    Duck eye injury

    Yes so it was looking a little more pink and swolen, less feathers and then that darker patch top left just looks a little swolen, I thought maybe that part was a cut/injury? Is there anything you can do to reduce mating 😅😩

    Drake shaking head

    Yes 0:12 he shakes his head then ruffles, obviously that is normal but was concerned with the repetitiveness and I have noticed some days he will do it more than others the last few weeks
