Hi, I'm hoping for a little advice or reassurance I've had a pair of Muscovies (male & female) for about four years now, and they are acting very strange this winter. First off, I am in Florida, so it does not get that cold. But, starting with our first tiny cold spell, my ducks took to their coop and have basically refused to come out since. I have to kick them out each day when I clean and chase them out into the yard for the 'free range' time that they normally would spend the majority of their day doing. Then they just want back in. This also happened to coincide with their molting beginning, which I have also thought might be the cause. But, they have never responded to cold or molting in this way before. They are eating (perhaps a bit less though it seems to me) and bathing, and appear otherwise healthy. When I bring them treats of bananas or whatever, they gobble it up no problem. When I get them out walking around, they're not showing any signs of distress (except they are angry about not being let back into the coop). This is why I haven't take them to the vet, because the 'symptom' (if you can call it that) is just sort of a general, nondescript 'laziness', and I have a feeling the vet is not going to be able to draw much of a diagnosis off that. It is just weird, and a few searches of this site yielded no references to this sort of this that I could find, so I am just wondering if anyone had this experience before. Are they just getting older and more sensitive perhaps? Any input would be greatly appreciated-- I am getting really worried about them!
