    About 2 days ago my female duck has not been herself fully. She lays around more. And her feathers looked puffed. Looks like she hurts when she cleans by her bottom. Is there something wrong with her or is this normal. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    [​IMG] I am glad you joined us! I don't know much about ducks, so I can't say what might be wrong with her. If I were you, I would check this forum out: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks
    I hope you enjoy BYC, best wishes!

    G’Day from down under phoenix1234 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I have no experience with ducks. She is a cutie! As others have mentioned, the Duck Forum will be a great place to start.

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]
