Your duck isn't moving around and is unable to clean herself. She's unwell. Maggots don't just try to make friends and hang out for no reason. There's something going on. You're being argumentative with anyone that suggests something that you don't want to hear. I imagine the majority of people don't want to post because of that fact. We want your duck to feel better and to be able to be a duck. Clearly she's unhappy and returning her to the pond where she hides all day isn't helping her wellbeing. Didn't you bring her in from the pond because she had maggots?Where? Two people here have expressed astonishment at the age of my ducks.
My duck is not unwell. The problem is her inability to clean herself, which has zero to do with diet.
I have 8 other birds of ages 5 to 7 that are models of health and vitality.
I need to see at least one duck that is older than mine which was fed only the proper feed (except a few treats) for me to concede that the proper feed is at least as good as dogfood.
Yet no one can do even that much. Instead I'm expected to abandon my own experience in favor of theories of people who haven't accomplished as much. It's absurd.
If the foremost authority on fertility in relation to nutrition + demonstration of his theories in action isn't enough then why would more facts make a difference?
There is nothing left to do to help my duck other than recommending a good B vitamin. The solution is returning her to the pond so she can resume caring for herself without my meddling.
Im locking my animals up right now but I will happily share a picture of the liquid B vitamins with you.
I truly wish your duck the very best. I want her to live many more years as a happy healthy duck, honestly.
