    Difference between female and male muscovies.

    I really want to know the difference between male and female without sexing. I am not confident enough to watch a youtube on sexing ducks, to actually go out and do it. Here is what I want to show you. One has black on the top of its head .. the other doesn't. They are about 5 weeks old...

    Split skin on meat birds.

    Our first year raising our own meat birds. They are the ones that get big and are all white. We bought them at the Coop store the 27th of May. Out of 35, we only have 18 left. What is bothering me is how the ones left, look. It is horrible. Hardly no feathers and their skin is very dark...

    I have a question that I really would like to have an answer to. This morning I picked up 4 new female ducks. I got home at 8 am and by noon, one of the poor ducks had no feathers left on the back of her head and neck. She was actually bleeding all along the back of her neck. So I put her...

    Help! What is wrong with my duckling's feet?

    I bought 2 baby runners yesterday and the area they were kept in was horribly dirty, stinky and so tiny for about 100 ducklings all mixed together. I was heart broken to see the poor darlings in such conditions and would have adopted each one but had to be content with only 2 so I took the 2...

    Big problems with big pond

    I had a beautiful huge pond dug up in my front yard for all my ducks and geese. The pond holds thousands of gallons of water and was great for the first month but now I have a dark green oil-like slick on top of the water. No algae growing , just the top layer is dark green and it is driving...

    Ducks run away from duckling

    I always thought that ducks were a social species. Meaning they would care for ducklings other than their own but now I know better. We have a pair of khaki campbells, a lone magpie, and a pair of silver appleyards that roam freely during the day. Today I took all the ducklings and goslings...

    Dead fowls...

    I re-started my fowl hobby after many years and am so disappointed and torn up inside because of what has been happening the last 2 weeks. My main gander (chinese-african mix goose) was my pride and joy but was killed by something that got in the pen. Next day, my favorite little red hen...
