    Hello,

    I have two 7 week old runner ducks, both are lovely and feathering very well (and thank you to all who suggested Brewers Yeast for ones shaky legs - they are now perfectly fine).

    One however will not dunk her head into water, she will go just to her nostrils but now her eyes really do need a wash. She happily sits in water and preens all her feathers, especially her tummy but she will not try and wash her face. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to encourage her?

    Thank you!

    Toss some peas in there and she will dunk to get them?
