    Hello all,

    I went out to put my duck in his house tonight and noticed a strange sound coming from him. It sounded like his stomach was growling or something like that... has anyone had a similar experience? Should I be worried?

    sometimes if I've been holding them I notice their crops grinding, it sounds sort of like stomach growling.

    I have heard crunchy, growly noises from tummies from time to time. Haven't heard it in a while.

    Alright, well he seems to be acting fine and feels and looks healthy so I guess its probably no big deal. Thanks for the feedback though! Now I won't have to worry [​IMG]. I'll post again if I notice anything else strange [​IMG]
