my duck has not been very lively lately and I think its sick so please give me advice thx
If it's sick it need to be quarantined so it doesn't make everybody else sick. Make sure it has clean bedding, food, and water. Make sure to clean its cage often and if it's not drinking then put your finger in the water and touch the tip of its beak so it will at least get a little bit of water. Keep doing that untill she or he gets better. Hope this helps
Could you give us some more information?
Can the duck walk, is it male or female? What is its food? Is it part of a flock? Are there drakes in the flock? Is it eating, drinking, defecating? How old is it?
is the duck supposed to just pee out of its butt and it can walk it is a female It stays with chickens so it eats chicken food but now I put it in a chicken crate and it eats duck food 16% protein. it has medicine to keep it hydrated. I have forty chickens and another duck with it. there are no roosters or drakes in the flock. I dont think it is eating much but it is drinking a decent amount. Also it is d]pooping a lot
Can you post a picture of it's poop?
I would get a fecal sample to a vet to check for parasites.
a vet is a lot of money

Here, a vet visit can be around $100. A fecal test is about $25.
