Hi... you were all so helpful this morning with our duckling arrival. I have a question about Ping, the one with the wonky beak. Take a look at her picture. Her nostrils don't seem to be as deep as her companions'...wondering if there is anything we need to watch for with her to help her succeed.

Hi there, her deformity appears to be very slight, so as long as you provide wide, open, and deep feeder's and waterer's she should be fine.

Thanks. I was worried about her little nose getting plugged...it doesn't seem to be as deep as the others. She's drinking okay. Ate some egg earlier, but haven't seen her eat any flock raiser yet. Made another egg just so it's available as an option.

How old is she? You can make a wet soupy feed mixture if she seems to have a hard time eating dry.
