    Hello All,

    My name is Lisa and this is my very first post. I have a Pekin duck that needs penicillin and I don't know how to do it. I know its in the breast muscle. I read an incredible article on how to administer penicillin to a chicken by Natalie Ross, the concept would be the same for a duck. Is there a video out there where I can see how this is to be done? We live out in the county and there are no poultry/water-fowl vets. Our regular vet does our goats, but not these. Its difficult for many of us who live on small farms and there are no proper vets available. Not their fault. There is no need for them to specialize in something for 1 or 2 people. I get it...

    So with this being said, WHAT DO I DO AND HOW DO I DO IT?! (shaking head while facing downward)

    I appreciate any help. I need a step by step approach if you will :)

    Thank you so much for the assistance. My husband did it right. We were going to make a video ourselves and post it here. Perhaps we can do it tomorrow. We have 3 days to administer the penicillin.
    This site is a life saver!
    Thank you again
