    Urgent/Duckling overdue for hatching

    It’s day 33 of hatching and my mallard duckling hasn’t even piped yet. When we try tapping on the egg shell, we don’t hear a chirp or anything. When we try candling it, we don’t see movement. It also has a black spot inside the shell that has been there for a few days now. We had another egg...

    information on wood ducks needed

    Hi everyone, I’ve been raising a Wood duck for almost 10 weeks now, & I’m a little confused about some things. I’m really trying to figure out how old it is & what sex it is. I was waiting patiently for the yellow ring to form around the eye, but I have yet to see that happen. I thought it would...

    I have 6 ducklings (assorted breeds purchased from TSC) that are approximately a month old. The duckling with the bleeding wing (? bleeding from pin feathers?) is a Pekin. They stay indoors but regularly go outside to swim in their tiny pool. Today, I noticed dried blood on the edge of both...

    Help identify ducklings please.

    We just got two adorable little additions to our flock and we are not sure what they are. I just can't wait to see what they turn out to be! Anyone have any idea what they are? The one with the dark beak has black fluff under it's yellow fluff and the underside of it's beak is half black and...

    Injured duckling!

    One of my ducklings got his leg caught in some wire late last night/early this morning. He is drinking water but not eating. I moved him inside so the other ducks wouldn't get on his leg. He can't get up/stand up, of course. I'm not sure what I should do to help him. I'm not even sure if he will...

    Is my TSC Pekin really a Pekin?

    The black spot does not come off. His fluff is definitely just black there. Also, I've noticed that two of them, including this one, have significantly lighter pink bills than the others. Mix breed Pekin? Or something else?IMG_20190902_221621520_MP by Kate Morgan posted Sep 2, 2019 at 10:20...

    How do ducklings find their place in the flock hierarchy?

    Hi Friends! About two weeks ago my Indian Runner Duck Katharina, hatched out a total of seven ducklings and since three days they are running around with the rest of the flock. No serious attacks from the other ducks or my two drakes have happened so far, which makes me wonder how do those...

    How to keep Owls Away

    I am raising backyard ducklings and there’s an owl(s) in the neighborhood. One swooped down over my flock twice one morning and I had to scare it off. This morning it picked up and took the head clean off of a young dove in my yard! I can’t help but think that could’ve been one of my...

    Duckling can't walk, How do I rehab them?

    So I recently hatched 6 ducklings and for the first 3 weeks they've been fine, however recently one of the ducklings hasn't been able to walk. Her legs are splaying out slightly and she is otherwise healthy and eating/drinking as normal. When she wants to move around she'll sort of shove herself...
