    Broken egg in vent

    Hello! I noticed this evening that one of our hens has a broken egg in her vent. She has been acting off for a few days and tonight was the first night she let us get a good look. I will post a picture for reference. What can I do to help her feel better?

    Uneven Ratio Problem

    Hi! I have 7 males and 4 female ducks. Once the males are old enough I’m going to separate some of them for the females. I’m leaving about 2 drakes in there. Probably 2 Pekins. Can I have a flock of 5 boys?

    Raising ornamentals with domestic

    Hello! I am raising some Welsh Harlequin, Cayuga, and Blue Swedish ducks right now. I really like ornamental duck breeds but they are not very friendly normally.

    Giant duckling!!

    So maybe two weeks ago, I hatched out my first duckling. I usually purchase my ducklings from hatcheries, but my first duckling successfully hatched, after many failed attempts. See, my breeding drake has very strong genes, which In this case, isn’t a good thing. He’s had leg problems ever since...

    Can I use tap water and hose water for my ducks?

    I have some ducks hatching soon and I would like to know if I can use tap and hose water for my ducks. While they’re small I would like to let them swim in the bath tub/sink. When they get older the plan is to get them a kiddie pool and fill it up with water. This is my first time hatching...

    Should I help?

    So this egg has been like this for almost 36 hours now (duck eggs) and I've heard yes and no answers to helping. It looks like the membrane is dry (it's a yellowish color) and it has broken through, but it hasn't made any progress at this point. Should I assist even a little? If so how?

    Help! I have one female and one male duckling!!!

    So recently I bought two ducklings hoping that they were both females so that I would get some eggs from them. Instead, I just found out that one of them is male! I’m not sure what to do!! I wanted eggs and I read online that the ration for male to female ducks should NOT be 1:1. Help!!!

    Khaki Campbell and Indian runners

    Hey so we're incubating eggs that came from a khaki Campbell duck and an Indian Runner drake. Does anyone know what their behaviors and appearance will look like once they're older? I had a Khaki Runners duckling awhile ago but he didn't live past 5 days. so I have no idea what they look like
