    My duck has a super swollen & awkward looking chest right now. He can't put his head down to eat or forage. It wasn't like this last week.. thoughts?

    Here's another pic of him with all the other ducks.
     
  3. It looks like gorged himself on something....Like he ate lots and not enough pebbles to help digest what he consumed..You could separate him and try giving him some grit to help break down whats in his crop.......

    Best wishes....
