    Last night i noticed that neither one of my khaki campbells are eating. They are drinking fine and acting like they feel ok. I thought at first it may be that my pekin ducks were maybe being bullies and not letting them eat since they are a good bit bigger. That doesnt seem to be the case though, i put food on the floor right in front of them and also in my hand and they still would not eat. Any suggestions?

    How old are they? Ducklings don't really eat for two or three days after they hatch, their using what they have from the yolk they do drink water though from day one. If they're more than three days old then that's odd. You could try putting their food int heir water or mixing it with water to make it mushy. They might be having trouble eating without water.
