    Hi guys, I have 5 6week old peking ducks. The male has panted and seemed too warm from the time they arrived.
    A friend told me that this is normal but seems listless. The girls are more active than he is. Is this normal? Any help would be appreciated!

    Welcome to BYC! I'd recommend posting your questions in the "Duck" or "Emergencies, Diseases, Injuries, and Cures" section.

    Definitely post on the ducks thread and emergencies - in as much detail as possible. Are you using a heat lamp, maybe he just needs an area he can move to, to get away from the heat.
