I need to give my Pekin, male, a course of antibiotics with an IM syringe. I am an RN & comfortable with this; however, I cannot tell for sure if he is getting the shot. With a human I can obviously see better due to lack of plumage. Where is the best site for a duck?

Please email me at [email protected] As well as any replies here.

Many Thanks,
Char:rolleyes:

leg, specifically the thigh. have a helper wrap the duck in a towel and hold it, take your fingers on your non dominate hand and lift the feathers up exposing the skin. Wipe, and inject moving with an in and up motion from the joint (knee) towards the hip to get into the meatiest part of the leg.
