Hi! I'm new to this site and and raising my first set of Peking ducks. We got 4 of the cute little buggers last Saturday. My son who is four and has been playing with them non stop has developed the flu. We have been washing our hands and being very sanitary. But it has raised a few questions that I am having a hard time finding answers to. Can ducks transfer any type illness to children? If you have knowledge or could post any articles that word be greatly appreciated.
