    Hello everyone, I might need help. Our new call duck (our first) has a new posture- her rump in bent down toward the ground. She has been like this for a couple days now. She looks to be eating and drinking normally.
    I looked at photos we took of her when we first brought her home, and she definitely has a different stance now.

    We are just learning, and I would sure appreciate any advice or thoughts on this. Or if it would be something normal I do not know about?


    Thanks!

    It depends. Is there any chance that you could post a picture. It could just be changes in growth! Sometimes it can be serious in my experience.

    Thank you so much for your answer, I do not know anywhere else I can ask. I believe she is fully grown. I will try to get a picture today. What could it be?


    One other note- I am feeding her Manna Pro gamebird- 24% - it was the onlyy thing available in our rural town. Is this acceptable feed? Could she be constipated?
