Hey guys, I've been a long time reader of this site but never really posted/joined. I currently have an Australian wood duck called Peep (she's in my display pic) whom I adopted when her family was killed and she was left stranded on a pond by herself. She's adorable and I love her so very very much, but considering how much I care about her it's only natural that I've got some worries. She has a decent sized cage/hutch for her to potter around in and it gets moved every other day for fresh grass. Unfortunately, I'm a student so I can be busy for a lot of the day. She gets about an hour (or longer) run in the morning before I have to head to Uni and she always has a shower with me (yes, she loves showertimes with me... no soap!) and then we chill out on the bed for a few hours before I put her to bed. In between that time though, she has to stay in that cage... I'd love to let her roam but there are too many cats around and getting a bigger pen is out of the question (I'm renting). Is that enough time for her out of the cage? Would she be better off with a family with a better setup? I mean, she's my baby, but I want to do what's best for her. Also, she only ever eats her chicken crumble.... I see her foraging on the ground etc but any other veggies or things I offer her she nibbles but then remains uninterested in. Is this a problem? Should I be giving her something else for her nourishment? Thanks so much guys. From a very worried duck mumma.
