    Sick / Injured Duck.

    My year old duck became injured about 2 weeks ago. Something happened to one of her legs, but nothing appeared swollen, cut, or anything. She stopped walking, but could drag herself around.

    Need Help! What do I do about my aggressive drakes?

    For the past 3 months, my drakes have been super aggressive towards my females. Constantly trying to mate. I know that’s normal but it’s gotten worse and worse. I have more males than females, but at first it was fine. There was no overbreeding, no injured necks. Everything was fine. They have...

    Before He Worsens

    Life is always the opposite of what we expect it to be. Nothing can be planned. Just when you intend to move forward, the walkway crumbles and you fall backward. Back in April, a chick had hatched beneath one of our hens. In June, another hatched from a different hen. Sure enough... we...
