    sunni the peking is acting really weird.

    She is not as active as normal. Seems to want to be by herself. Did a quick exam and everything seems ok.

    I am giving her some Nutri drench--what else should I do?

    Age?
    What do you feed on a daily basis?
    What does the poop look like?



    Do you have another thread (I should have checked first) about this same duck?

    No other thread

    7.5 months

    They get all flock crumble

    Some treats like scrambled egg, meal worms, and greens

    One of the ducks has green poop

    I put plastic up and they have been picking at it. I worry she got a piece. This would have bern 48 hours ago.

    She is but not today. Neither of them laid today. One laid two eggs yesterday. Nothing seems to be stuck.

    Should I leave her outside or bring her in?

    She is in the pool and just staying in one place acting really tired--not completely lethargic but almost there.

    One duck laid two eggs yesterday? Were both eggs shelled?

    If she were mine I would assume some sort of reproductive issue, so I would bring her inside, give calcium orally, then place in a warm bath for a couple of hours.

    Is a vet an option?

    Can you post a picture? Green poop can be a sign of a bacterial infection or disease.

    Do they have access to oyster shell too?

    How much plastic is missing?

    Not much. They more ripped it then anything.

    All eggs were shelled

    Just ran out of oyster shell yesterday

    What kind of calcium orally?
