    My two Indian frnner ducks are not eating. I fed them their usual feed but they just stuck their beak in it and then walked away. They both laid an egg each this morning and they look alright but usually they run to the food and eat like crazy. They have never left food uneaten before. Could they be sick?

    Yes, they could be sick.

    Could you please write a little more about their day? Anything change? What's the weather like? What is their feed? Is it possibly gone moldy? Have they had access to anything toxic?

    Try giving them their favorite treats. Do they eat it?

    Have they been foraging and are full?

    They started eating again later that day so they should be fine. Thanks for the reply.
