One of my 4 Pekin ladies has been acting odd lately. Two days ago there were strong winds and when I let the ducks out of the coop, she came flying out and squawking as if afraid of something. Typically she's the loudest but its more of a "scolding" than anything when I get close to the group. Now its more of a "I'm in danger" or "help me" kind of squawk. Whenever I get close, she is squawking and I've noticed that her tail is almost constantly wagging. She is eating and drinking water, I saw her poop. I've noticed only 3 eggs the last two mornings instead of the normal 4 though there were some soft egg shell fragments yesterday. I'm just worried about her. Maybe its stress with the windy/cold weather?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
