    Hi. My pekin duck won't extend her neck. To me, it looks a little bigger than normal? And she keeps opening her mouth. No sound is coming out when she does, but she can still quack when her mouth is closed.
     
  2. Does she have access to water? She may be choking on dry feed, get her some water!
    Are any other ducks acting weird? Does she have any external wounds? How many boy ducks do you have, they could be picking on her.


    Welcome to BYC :hugs

    Yes, she was drinking water normally. No other ducks, just her, and no injuries either. She seems to be doing okay now. Thank you!

  4. I'm glad she's doing better, keep an eye on her just in case. Sometimes ducks do really silly things that worry us for no reason. :)
