    Sick duck?

    2 days ago my rouen started acting weird, it stopped being loud and it would gag. Now, it's starting to have seizure like movements, like falling down and then act like nothing happened seconds after. I read that it is possible that a duck does that when they have something stuck in their throat...

    My juvenile khaki campbell fell while running away from me and now she can't stand up correctly

    This happened a few minutes ago, after letting them swim for a while it seemed too cold so I tried taking them back to the crate where I keep them. She suddenly started running and tripped, thankfully the floor didn't touch the neck but she fell on one of her paws. There's no blood, twists or...

    What breed and gender could this duck be?

    I got him/her (the one in question, which I hope is a male) and a female khaki Campbell a few weeks ago from a popular breeder in my area. They were at least 1 week old when I bought them, and my guess is that they are about four weeks at the moment. He/her quacks harshly when separated from the...

    A Duck & Chicken Hatched 1 set of Eggs. HELP!

    So I had my duck sit on Call Eggs and in the last week a broody hen joined the fun and started sitting. Today they hatched out and the ducklings are half under the hen and half under the duck. The duck is protective of both lots, as they are spending time under both of them. I am planning on...

    Dirty vents and deceased birds

    We've got (or had) 5 hens housed with 3 ducks. A couple of our hens have had chronic dirty vents and some diarrhea. They're housed in a huge outdoor pen (with coop inside) so it's not easy to tell who is laying or what poo looks like in great detail, but it's clear that 2 of them had diarrhea...

    Chicken and Duck Eggs together?

    I set chicken eggs last week that are on day 6 or 7 today. Then my friend surprised me and brought me some fertilized duck eggs today. I'd really love to add them too since I'm doing this in my kindergarten classroom, and it would be so fun for them to see chicks and ducklings! But I know if I...

    Is this normal for a developing egg?

    I really don’t know what to think. I am really confused on what this is.. we have 8 duck eggs in the incubator and 6 or 7 of them have weird spots in them(some look different than others) they move as the embryo does. We are currently on day 19 and will attach images. I’d you’ve ever incubated...

    Duck or chicken eggs?

    We have 8 chickens, 4 female ducks and 3 male ducks with only about 3 mo difference in age. They all like to sleep in the same coop with the ducks on the bottom. We found the 2 bigger eggs in the bottom, one with a duck feather on it. They are both about the same size and color but the shape...

    How to keep ducks out of the chicken coop?

    I have a chicken coop that's 4 feet off the ground. The ducks have their own house. But I have one very persistent duck that keeps getting into the coop and smashing and eating eggs. I've clipped their wings, and changed the solid ramp to a sloping ladder affair with spaces between the rungs. So...

    How much scoops should feed an adult duck?

    Hello, how much should I feed an adult male khaki campbell duck? I feed him pellets/feeds 3x a day with four teaspoons per serving. How much is enough? I don’t have a gram scale or measuring cup so you might want to measure by scoops. Thanks
