    Should I be adding water to my ducklings food?

    Please help me! I have been feeding my duckling starter chick feed and some websites say I should be wetting it in order to stop them from choking on the food. Should I be wetting his feed? He is about three weeks old now.

    ducklings only eat when hand fed

    I always have a duck feeder full of food and I rarely see my ducklings eat from it so I try to hand feed them and when I do hand feed them they always go crazy over it and even fight for it. But they dont go for the food in the duck feeder, is this normal? 2 week old muscovy ducklings btw.

    These are ducks but help!

    We just got two ducks from Tractor supply and they said the yellow one was a pecking duck and the grey one with yellow they said they “think it’s a breed that stands straight up” but they weren’t sure of the name of the breed. Anyone know? Also when and how can you sex ducks!

    My duckling won’t stay under their heat lamp

    It hatched this morning and is very attached to our kittens. When I take it away to put it in its own cage with its heat lamp, food, water etc, it starts quacking and trying to get out (I think). Is this normal or should I be worried. (If so what can I do about it)

    Southeast hatcheries?

    Hi all, first time post! We are looking to order some female ducklings. We started our flock from TC, but most of them ended up drakes and we are raising ducks for eggs. I’ve seen good reviews about Metzer Farms, but we are based in North Alabama and I’m hoping to order from a hatchery closer...

    Duck Swollen Inside (Upper) Beak

    My 3-4 week old duckling was outside in her pen when I noticed she couldn’t close her beak. Upon further inspection, the roof of her mouth in her upper beak is very swollen causing the beak to look tilted to the right and unable to fully close. Drinking water and eating is appears to be a bit of...

    Introducing Ducklings to Flock

    I posted a couple weeks ago about the issues one of our new ducklings was having. He or she…well, since it is clearly lucky to have survived we named it Lazarus and call it Lazzy so I’ll stick with that here. So to quickly recap the issues; we got 5 ducklings -not sure what kind- and 4 of them...

    My ducks are scaredy-cats

    Hi all, so I recently built a pond for my 4 ducks (7 feet wide, 4.5 feet deep) and the ducks naturally loved it immediately. We couldn’t keep them out while we were building it! Well as of lately they have been hesitant going in. The past few days they will approach the pond and examine it...

    Molting?

    Hi!! My two oldest ducks (about 1.5 - 2 years old) appear to be possibly molting. It is the beginning prime summer time where I live (Maine) and it’s starting to get very hot out daily. I’m unsure if it is molting or if they are sick. They are acting normal, eating and drinking, their poop looks...
