    We’ve just moved our flock of 14 chickens and 3 ducks to a friends run and coop while we move house. I went there this morning to sort there area out and noticed our runner duck badgie was just standing there not being responsive and looking shaken. I put her in the small pool as usually she loves that and will drink and Bob her head into the water but she didn’t move and looked very cold and was mildly shaking. I have taken her out and she’s been with me a couple of hours in the warm her head shakes a bit she’s not making any noise and just stands there also she’s only pooped once in that time and it was runny and mainly white. She seems off water and food and I don’t know what to do with her

    Pictures? What do you feed her? Has she laid an egg lately? how are the others? Can you separate her in case it's contagious? I'll get some more help. @Miss Lydia

    Have any of your chickens or other ducks been sick lately?

    Miss Lydia Mary Did You Know....

    She’s beautiful! Please post a pic of her poop. Any chance she may have gotten into anything toxic?
