    Oh my!

    Please answer the questions here:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewforum.php?id=10

    You may also want to post what's happening to your ducks there, instead of on this section....as you are more likely to get quicker response.

    Best wishes. I haven't experienced this but will look for your response. Thanks. Nancy

    How horrible [​IMG] , but there is too little info to even guess what might be happening.

    What are you feeding?

    Water - how deep is their container?

    How old are they?

    What condition are the bodies when you find them?

    How are the ducks acting before they pass - a week before, two days before, the day before?

    Do they free range?

    could your feed be moldy?
