    If they came from TSC that is a white layer and the bill color is normal. That looks like a very healthy duck. Sounds like your vet is not Avian? I wouldn't worry. White layers are great ducks.

    Yes, I can see how they might "catch" the floating cotton wood seed! It is like snow here too!

    He claimed to be. I think I'm going to have to venture out further to find another vet. This one was 3 hours away. Maybe I can find one in Ohio or Windsor.

    Do they have standoffish temperament? Are they duck bullies by nature too? I read that pekins are bullies to other ducks, which seemed to fit her personality!!!! Poor Charlie is constantly being pecked at.

    I’d just like to add that I’d personally skip adding the apple cider vinegar to their water. There’s no actual proof that it has any benefits. It just makes the water taste bad.
