    My duck has been limping for a while now....

    So my female duck is about 7 months old now, and for the last 3 months she has had a massive limp. She would go back and forth to favoring both legs and we went through multiple stages of wrapping them, soaking them in Epsom, keeping her isolated, all of it except the vet. I think both her legs...

    How do you tell how many eggs a bird will lay a year?

    If a duck is a cross and you know what the two breeds it's parent are, can you estimate how many eggs it will be able to lay a year? The parents are a male swedish blue and a female cayuga. Cayuga can lay between 100-150 eggs a year and swedish blues can lay between 100-180. Based off of this...

    Help! Anxious Cayuga ducks!

    Hi there! I am a first time duck owner, and I have two, 2 month old cayuga ducks. I got them from a fairly shady breeder when they were a day old (chicks not handled and kept in small brooder boxes with dozens of other ducklings, very crowded). These two have always been quite skittish...

    Do Swedish Drakes ever sit on eggs?

    I have 2 Cayugas and 2 Swedish ducks. One Cayuga has gone broody. One of the Swedish ducks we are 90% sure is a male. It's larger than the other 3, specifically its head, and has a green sheen to its plumage on its head like they say the males do. It doesn't have a sex feather but I've heard...

    Mystery Mutt Duckling... what do you think it is?

    On the 30th of last month I was given a 2 day old duckling that had leg problems (it couldn't stand or walk). Long-ish story short, it was niacin deficient but is now perfectly fine and living in a Rubbermaid in my bedroom until my other ducks and geese hatch. The girl who hatched him got the...

    Hello lovely peeps! I’ve been a long-time lurker on this forum... For years it’s been my go-to place for any duck related info, and it’s always reaffirming to read the stories of equally poultry obsessed people! Recently, I’ve had some bad luck in losing two of my older ducks to age and...

    Mama duck advice?!

    Hi there, My cayuga has recently hatched her baby. She is typically quite calm about me invading her space, she sometimes welcomes it. I entered their brooding pen this morning to try to hold her baby, and she was OK with me approaching him. He then jumped in the water with her (it's shallow...
