    Is it ok to give my drakes layer feed?

    Hi, I have read some things that said that giving drake ducks layer pellets can give them kidney problems. Is that true? Do I need to get different feed for my 2 drakes? What should I get?

    Help! A bit of back story - We tried to hatch six Minature Silver Appleyards, we unfortunately only hatched one little duck which meant a quick panic trip to a local farm to buy some more ducklings to keep the little one company (who was only happy when being played youtube videos of other...

    Duckling Suddenly Scared of Us

    Hey everyone! Our duckling is nearing the 15 week mark and for the past couple of days his behavior has changed. He’s been abnormally skittish when we take him out of his cage making it very difficult for us to put him back in when we’re done cleaning and letting him stretch. It seems to all be...

    Golden 300s

    So I've had my eye on one of our 4 golden 300s and one of our 4 white layers for a while. I suspected the golden was a male but once his first set of feathers came in I thought I must have been wrong because he looked like the ladies. Well..he has been getting his adult feathers in and tonight I...

    Hi all! Newbie here! So, I've recently rehomed two drakes, they came as a pair so get on really well together and have been together since ducklings as far as i know. I'd like to add to the two of them. I'm not sure I have the space for girls as probably looking at having to get 10+ so they...

    Do I need to separate my drake from my ducks?

    We have one Muscovy drake and two Muscovy hens who have gone broody at the same time which dwindles the choices. 1 Cayuga hen, a mallard drake, they have been raised together since hatchlings and are definitely a pair. We added two straight run ducklings about 12 weeks ago. I'm pretty sure they...

    Getting rid of mean drakes

    Is it bad to put bigger duck breeds in with smaller breeds?

    I really want to put my Pekin hens and one drake in with my runner ducks. I’m a little worried that my big Pekin drake may drown the hens in the pond when trying to mate. Reminder- *Im not using kiddie pools I’ve got a small pond*

    2 Indian Runner Drakes Free to Good Home

    My husband and I were dumb. Well, I was 8 months pregnant and he was most probably too afraid of angry hormones to talk me down but we brought home chickens and ducks from our beloved spring planting festival (we are avid gardeners) back in May. What can I say? Momma was in full blown nesting...
