    Some of my ducks have "cleavage." Has not seemed to be a problem.

    thank you, this made me laugh, lol.

    but, some of mine get this way too, its most noticable on growing babies and when the duck hasnt eaten in a bit, the center of their chest looks 'caved in' with a line and makes it look like ducky boobies. at least this is what i think youre referring to.

    It means they are well fed. As long as they aren't obese, duck boobs are a good thing!

    Speaking of "duck boobs," I just named my blue runner duckling Dolly and a lady at work asked me if she was the one with big boobs. [​IMG] I said no, she's actually the only one who won't have any! (She's my only runner) I hope I haven't given her a complex [​IMG]

    When we were raising our Aylesbury drake Monty- we often made jokes about his " doobies" His duck boobs... Being such a large breed we were not surprised to see his breast area develop so rapidly. We thought instead of a nappy we could get him a bra. Now his keel matches in size he looks less silly than as a baby.
