    I woke up this morning to my young drake having a swollen fluid filled crop not really walking around wont eat or drink and very overly calm feathers seam puffed butt drooping he seemed perfect yesterday. Is he dying?

    I dont kno if you can see it but its lopsided and huge... the black duck is his mate her crop photo for comparison. And poo photo it looks odd it looks like his crumbles but maybe that good maybe hes starting to empty?

    His poop looks like he’s emptying okay. Does he have buckets of water for drinking?do you give them food over night? If so don’t tonight and see how he looks in the morning. That’s a good indicator on if the are emptying their crop. If you feel better putting him up for a while now but over night will give you more of an idea.

    He has bucks for dunking his head and a pool he grazes free range all day and eats flock raiser in bed. Hes looking better but still not acting like he feels well...

    Do you think he could have gotten into something toxic? In the duck sticky’s there is an article on flushes
