    Hey again guys!!! Quackers feet healed up great and she is doing awesome now![​IMG]
    But I was bored and looked up how long ducks her size live and I heard somewhere that if they lay too many eggs that they might have a shorter life span. She has been laying 9 1/2 months straight since she laid the very first egg. Is it true that this could shorten her life span if she keeps it up? How could help? Also, when is will she stop? She hasn't molted except a few feathers here and there and layed eggs straight through winter.

    Thanks guys as always,
    PetDuck

    Quackers is happy outside in her freshly cleaned pool. She is enjoying the nice cool weather lately. I think everyone here is happy that fall is approaching :)
