Oh my ok, they are adorable and absolutely fun to watch. BUT it seems like no matter what I try they are a terrible mess all the time. They are staying wet and gross because of what they do with their food and pooping. They can't stay wet all the time right? NOW one of them has a leg problem, I am so worried and I don't know what to do. It is a 4 week old cayuga or east indies (haven't figured out which yet) and one of his legs is sticking out up around his thigh and the lower part of his leg is going in, like he is stepping on his other foot. so he keeps shuffling sideways. All this after loosing one a couple of weeks ago I just don't know what to do, I have raised many chickens with very few problems, but this seems to be my year for problems! even with chicks! We finally hatched baby call ducklings and one died so I got the other one a companion. And NOW it's having issues. OH and it's belly is looking bare, like, the feathers are gone but I can't tell if it's little pin feathers growing in or if it's loosing feathers from being wet all the time. PLEASE HELP! I am so worried about little Skittles I just thought I knew enough about ducks, and figured they couldn't be any worse than chickens. I clean out their brooder every day, and usually that really isn't often enough! by the time it's done it's STINKS and the ducks are nasty and I let them swim in the tub while I clean out their brooder.
