    Dying Ducklings

    I have a friend who just got 20 new ducklings. A few have been randomly dying and he has no idea what's happening :hit. Does anyone have any ideas?

    What breed are these rescued ducklings??

    I just picked up two ducklings from a few towns over where a group of university students had them in their apartment. They were feeding them all purpose bird seed and just generally had NO idea how to care for them. I have had backyard ducks in the past but am no expert on breeds, wondering if...

    I'm going to pick up a new drake on Wednesday! I'm so excited! :D I'm going to have to separate him for a few weeks but I'm pretty sure he's really healthy so I'll put him in with my girl soon. How long after they are put together can I begin collecting eggs that will be fertile? :confused: It's...

    Is it alright to hold new babies, with a protective mother?

    My female duck just recently hatched some ducklings. She has been extremely broody during the whole process, and isn’t that fond of interaction with people as it is. I would like to hold the ducklings and get them used to being around people, so that they are a bit friendlier than she is once...

    Duckling/egg Question

    So, how should I go about handling the ducklings my girl is going to have (they're due in approx. a week)? I don't want to take them all from her since she's been doing all the sitting, but I also don't have the time or space for 10 (or more) ducklings, so I'm going to be rehoming some. Will it...

    Duck Identification/Confusion

    I have recently come into three ducks that I can only estimate are nearing 6-8 weeks of life. When I first got them (they were still baby yellow) I thought they might be Pekins but now I'm not so sure. They're getting black and white striped feathers on their backs and wings as well as the same...
