I let my 4 ducks out this morning and all seemed fine. I went to put them in their coop tonight and one would not go in. I looked closely and its backside was infested w maggots. Maybe someone will tell me I'm wrong but i put it down. I had a cat before with similar maggots and the vet said there was nothing he could do. Anyways I'm wondering if I need to worry about the other 3 and what precautions I can take so this never happens again. I'm not sure how it happened as I didn't see any injuries. The humidity and heat have been out of control so maybe that was it. All 4 ducks stopped laying about a week ago so hopefully they don't all have it? I keep it pretty clean but was out of town for 2 weeks. Anyways any thoughts?
