    You should just send Ming Ming to me [​IMG] That is the cutest tiny duck ever! We got a tiny Khaki Campbell at TSC a few months ago. Dips is still a bit smaller than the average duck but has bigger personality so I bet your Ming Ming will be just fine [​IMG]

    Are you sure Ming Ming isn't a Call Duck?

    What a little sweetie!! Such big eyes!! So tiny.. I have had a few that start off small but eventually catch up- and some that dont, they have had some issues though- so I hope that little ming ming is ok and grows up normally in the end.

    That looks just like my Micro as he was growing. Micro still has crusty eyes sometimes. I still make sure he gets lots of vitamins too. You just may have a "micro" on your hands. Mine is still hanging in there and fiesty as ever. Good luck yours is so precious too!

    Quote:ming ming never needed any help with drinking and eating she just is really small and bold in places
    I'm hoping its where her feathers are coming through
    i had to move her to another box her hatch mates started picking on her
    i moved her in with some hatchlings they too have out grown her lol
