Hi, I have 2 white Pekin ducks. I love them to death and they are all I have left. I recently lost 6 of my ducks, and it was very sad. It’s weird without them but my boys are brave and I’m planning on getting some more ducks. Maybe some call ducks and some chickens! Not for a while. But I need help. Last night, I was on this website after googling dehydration in ducks, and found some information. Then I got insanely worried today. My ducks, one in specific I noticed, have been panting. I thought maybe it was the feathers in his beak, so I got em out. Still pants. Now, mind you, he’s been doing this for a while. I thought nothing of it till I googled it and found this. Then after school, I’m pretty sure he had a neck convulsion. He looked like he was gonna throw up, but he didn’t. So I put them in their run. The only weird thing is that I don’t think they could be dehydrated! Why? WE LIVE ON A LAKE!!!!! I let them out the whole day and put them in bed at night. So I don’t see how they could be dehydrated. But nothing wrong with taking precautions! So, I put them in their pen, grabbed the one who’ve I’ve noticed panted and had the neck thing, and dipped his beak in some water and sugar. He drank some. I filled their two kiddie pools full of clean water, and locked em up. I saw them drink! I just don’t know. I’m sitting inside writing this, watching them drink. They are outside all the time, in the lake, and they drink. They never swim away which makes it easy to put em to bed. They’re good boys. I just don’t know. And is diharrea like liquid poo? Is their poo supposed to be, like, solid? Not all the way but like, consistency??? Idk. Just, please help!!!!!! I don’t know what I would do if I lost em. I love them so so much. I need answers quick. HELPPP!!!!!!
