    8 year old pekin duck cant walk very well. This isn't an emergency I just need advice.

    Pekin Ducklings Throats Puffing

    So I had 5 but unfortunately the runt had passed away last night. I have 4 2 1/2 week old Peking ducklings and it seems everytime they’re swimming or drinking water their throats get puffy and I can see skin. I heard it could be a possible air sac rupture but I’m not sure and wanted a second...

    Duck with eye infection - has anyone had a good outcome?

    My duck has an eye infection and it's pretty bad, we took her to the vet and have had her on oral antibiotics and a painkiller 2x/day, and eye cream 4x/day, for a few days now, but it hasn't gotten better. The last few days she's been very sleepy, like she'll just doze off while standing in her...

    HELP PLEASE

    I bought two baby Pekin ducklings from a local store, one of my babies “knees” look swollen and odd, he doesn’t stand for long periods of time and often falls over trying to walk, I thought it may be a niacin deficiency but the vitamin B3 complex and peas don’t seem to be doing anything..

    He's Killing my Hens

    I have a 2-year-old Pekin duck that is constantly pecking at my hens. I have already lost 3 hens to his pecking; I also feel that he killed my rooster. We separated him from the flock for a bit, let him out today and he was right back at it. What do I do? Is there anything I can do? Or do I...

    Pekin with bumble foot

    This is Angelina, she is a three year old pekin. We got her from Murdoch's so I have had her since she was a two day old duckling. She has had bumble foot for over a year now. I have tried treating it with epsom salt soaks but didn't do it enough and did not have confidence in myself to treat...

    Niacin deficiency or other problem?

    One of my Pekin hens is molting at the most inopportune time - when it's 20 degrees and the pond is frozen. I went out the other morning to her having a difficult time walking and keeping her feet flat on the ground. A couple times she literally fell over sideways and had a difficult time...

    Pekin duck injured leg????!!!!

    Hi all. So this pekin isn't mine, but stays in the stall with my fostered orphan goose. They've been together since my goose was still a gosling because she had a bad staff infection and had to be separated from her flock back in I believe April or the very beginning of the summer. They get...

    Female pekin duck flicking and twitching her wings constantly???

    Hey im going to try to attach a video of what she's doing. But she will do this for hours on end. Her feathers also seem to be so thinned out and not smooth. It looks like she's plucked out so many feathers and it's making me worried. She's not my duck. But she shares a stall with my goose and...

    Pekin Ducks Love Their Food!!!

    Hi there! Thank the Lord, I’m not having a problem with my duckies, I was just curious if anybody else had noticed this!!! So, we have had a Khaki Campbell and a Cayuga before. Neither one really cared for food!! If we wanted to watch them eat, we had to be sneaky!! Don’t get me wrong, they...

    Bruised duck beak?

    I’ve been away currently at uni and have left my ducks in the care of my parents. They’ve told me my male duck seems to have bruising on his beak and was curious to know if he’s just hurt himself or if it could be something else? He seems alright within his self but his beak isn’t looking the best.

    Confused about feeding pellets to pekin ducks…

    I’m really confused as to what kind of pellet feed they will need. I have 2 hens and 7 drakes. They’re only 9 weeks old, so there’s no breeding or laying going on. I don’t know what kind the hens need or what kind the drakes need. Or if the hens only need a certain kind of pellet feed when...

    A frame coop for my ducks, good idea or not?

    Posted this earlier, but I couldn’t get any replies. I’m thinking about building a bigger coop for my pekin ducks. I was thinking that it could be an a frame coop. I want to add a big enclosure to it using hardware cloth and a piece of wood over the wire on the one side. Obviously, the enclosure...

    Pekin duck won't stop screaming!!!

    Hello everyone! This is my first time raising ducks and I desperately need some help. I raised one pekin duckling (her name is Dior) ever since she has hatched and when she was around 2 months old I realised that it's cruel to not let her have friends! So I bought another pekin duck around the...

    Pekin duck wobbly

    My dad's male Pekin duck has started wobbling. When I watched him it's like he's losing his balance. He's eating, drinking, and does move around but stumbles and falls over. it seems to be his right leg that is giving out. I felt up and down the leg and the joints and there is no sign of trauma...

    My duck walks weird

    So I have four ducks. My one pekin has hobbled her entire life. She is active, eats fine, plays the most out of the four, and has no trouble swimming. She is not in pain as far as I know, but she rocks back and fourth as she walks. She’s also pretty hefty and is a lot heavier than the others as...
