    Hi Sarah and welcome to BYC. If you post a description of the illness on the Duck thread maybe someone there may be able to help out.

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything duck. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Joining your state thread will also put you in contact with other BYC members in your area.

    (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread)

    The members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.

    All the best
    CT

    Nice to meet you Sarah. I like to say "Beware of people bearing poultry." There is always a catch, males, masquerading as females, sick bird, or really mean ones. CTKen has given you many good links to follow.
