    one of my ducks has had diarrhea since he hatched! at first i just thought he was getting used to the food but he should already be used to it by now right? he has never had a solid poo its always really runny! what should i do?

    ps the other duck is fine poo wise, and the diarrhea duck is a lot heavier than the other duck if that helps

    it's not diarrhea... it's just pee, mixed in with the poop... as they get older they do that more and more... They porbably were just drinking and had to go! I know it freaked me out when i first had ducks, but it is normal, i promise... that's why you don't want to let them poop around the house.... it gets wet and it splatters....

    I'll second that.
    Even with the bathroom door closed I heard a "squort" sound every time my recovering duck and her companion "went".
