    Duck Birth Mark?

    Several months ago I raised a Pekin duckling in my room. He's grown relatively normally (other than the fact that he is freakishly large,) but as soon as his feathers started coming in, I noticed a very strange group of feathers. On the top of his tail, there was a compact group of soft...

    Taking ducks to the vet

    Could someone who has experience with raising ducks message me? I have some ducks and I'm not quite sure what's wrong with them. I'm not sure if it's a deficiency, injured legs, or a neurogical problem. I also have questions about vet costs.

    HELP! My male pekin duck attacked my other male

    So my both male Pekin ducks have been fighting lately and very aggressively. One of them injured the other eye. The first picture has like some foam coming out of it and then the other is when I spray water and the foam disappears. I don't know how I can cure it or what I can use. Can you help me?

    Unfriendly Birds

    I've owned my Pekin, Frand, for a little over a month now and she has yet to warm up to me. When I bought her she was a lot older than my Runner had been and clearly hadn't been handled much, but I thought that would go away. Is there anything I can do to gain her trust or at least make it...

    Updates: Well, I'm sad to say that my little Smeagol did not make it :hitI tried to do all I could for her, but I think she just hatched "wrong."

    Aggressive Pekin Drakes

    Last august I got 2 pekin hens, 2 pekin drakes, 5 chicken hens and 2 roosters.
