Well ive been gone for a week , i had someone watching my ducks for me, but ill never do that again. Yeah, she fed them .. once. The corn and flock starter got al soaked from the rain, the pools were solid mud , and in one of the main drinking buckets, there was a HUGE dead mouse! It was jet black and the only reason i knew it wasnt a rat was from the face. Well before I could remove it and get rid of it, my mama duck ( sitting on 13 eggs and still laying) went over and drank from it, so im sure they hae been doing it for a while. The mouse had been dead a couple of days. Even in water, he was hard. I dropped a rock on him to check out his consistency. His eyes were solid blue, im guessing from the water as well as cold. Will this hurt my ducks after drinking it? will it mess with the eggs that my duck is laying?
