Hi :welcome

Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid I've never heard of ducks being micro chipped. Horses, dogs and cats yes but not ducks. You could ask in the duck section of the forum about micro chipping. Here is the link > https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks
Yiu could try asking your local vet about this too.

Wishing you the very best of luck I hope you find the answers to your question about micro chipping.

Enjoy BYC :frow

Yes, anything *can* be chipped - however, an animal like a duck is unlikely to be scanned as it won't occur to most people it would be chipped as it is not a common practice for them - meaning the chip would likely do no good were your duck to become separated from you in any way.
