So, rather than posting a bunch of threads to show my stupidity I've decided to post all my ignorance in one place. Lately my ducks have been doing some new/odd things and I can't figure out if it's normal "duck stuff" or if there's something wrong, OR if I my ducks are just whacked! 1- Sleeping standing up on one foot. They have started doing this a lot. All over, not in just one or two specific areas. Head tucked under the wing and all. Do all ducks do this? Is there a reason they do this (normal or otherwise)? 2-Mallards with terrets syndrome? My 2 mallards have been twitchy like pigeons. Repetetive tick ike behavior. They will bob their heads up and down or side to side or in a ground pecking motion for no apparent reason. Again...normal or issue and why?!?! 3-Feather eating. They're molting like crazy right now. The male rouen is making the switch to drake colors and the F&W runners are getting more fawn then white. Even the females are changing their overall tones. The weird thing is that they're eating some of their own feathers. Not plucking them out and eating them, they're eating the ones that are laying around and/or floating along their pool. I didn't think anything of it since these guys seem to (at least try to) eat everything they can get their bills on BUT my husband swears he read somewhere that feather eating is a sign of something bad healthwise. Any words of wisdom here? I have a couple habitat questions too but I'll post those later b/c I want to attach pics for better perspective. Thanks to any and all who can help us! This site is a goldmine BTW! Don't know how'd I've had made it this far with my brood without it!
