Someone please help. Will he be okay? The other two drakes plucked his crest bald. I think skin too.
Greetings from Kansas, jlcollier1, and ! Pleased you joined our flock! Sorry to hear about your drake. You might consider posting in one or both of the following two links for advice:
Best wishes and hope your duck is okay!
Sometimes those crests are just irresistible to other birds, poor duck. If there are any bloody spots showing, dab some Blu-Kote on them so they won't be even more attractive to the peckers. The ER forum redsoxs gave you the link for will be able to help you out...a photo of the wounded duck can be helpful to figuring out how best to treat him.
Good luck to you and him, hope everything works out ok.
G’Day from down under jlcollier1 Welcome!
I hope your little guy is OK.
I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.
If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out
Did they attack him over his "crest," or because they don't want to share hens?
