    Help please, sick runner duck!

    Hello, i'm really worried and I don't know what to do: I let the ducks out this morning, all was fine but about half an hour later, bubbles ( a 1.5yo female runner duck) who is normally VERY vocal and hyper, seemed very lethargic and very quiet, that was instant alarm bells.

    3 week old duckling itching beak and sneezing! Please help!

    My 3-4 week old runner duckling, Waldo, has been itching around his beak a lot since I got him 5 days ago.

She also pants while the the...

    Runner sitting eggs

    Hi all, I am looking for a little advice from any runner duck keepers. Despite their reputation as being hopeless for sitting, my trout runner (Michonne) has bucked the trend, sitting 12 eggs for just over a week now.

    My first incubation of runner duck eggs

    I am trying to incubate 3 runner duck eggs. I started with 7, but the incubator I have bought is way too small and I couldn't place the eggs into laying position, so I could turn them. I tried turning them by tilting the whole incubator as much as I could for the first week. By then I started...
