    Yesterday I noticed on the ground (only where the ducks stay) some White/Milky looking, liquid. Not just a little blob like duck poop & I only noticed it in one spot, Not All over/every where... ~Also, last week the Rouen drake & hen & GC hen were all swimming, while the drake kept trying to Breed both hens, SHORTLY AFTER when they got out of the water I seen the drake had some White-ish liquid come out like when they go poop. I'm sure its NOT poop. Whats going on? [​IMG] {{Ummmm...IS it Time For The Ducks & The Bees Talk? Thanks, Julie

    Ducks can still have different kinds of poop. They dont urinate like mammals- so it may have been the duck equivalent that you saw. It is often white milky looking fluid.

    Duck 'urine' comes out as white bits in solid poos, or as white milky liquid in runny poos.

    They also secrete white milky liquid before and during intercourse.

    It's nothing to worry about [​IMG]
