Hey all, I am getting my first ducklings next week, and I've been doing a lot of research. One disease that scares me is duck plague or duck viral entertitis. I am not sure how common it is in small duck flocks, and most hatcheries do not have an option to vaccinate them before sending, in fact I can't even find a purchasable vaccine for it anywhere online. Is this something I should be concerned about? I am currently dealing with Marek's in my chicken flock, and I wish I would have vaccinated them as chicks to save me this heartache. I don't want to experience the same thing with my ducks, but so far vaccinating preventatively does not seem like an option. We do not have any pond nearby, but I have seen geese and ducks fly over from time to time. Can they spread that disease simply by flying over our property? If so how can I protect my quackers? Also can chicken Marek's mutate or morph into the DVE virus, or will my ducks be safe even if they mingle with my chickens? Sorry for all the questions I just don't want to learn the hard way with any more diseases.
