So my white rock hen has essentially been sitting for 5 weeks and hatched out 7 baby ducklings on Thursday. They are in a pen separate from the rest of my flock. They have a dog crate with pine shavings, food (a grower layer crumble)water, and a large shallow galvanized pan to swim in (they haven't found it yet). I've noticed that the last week the hen has had daily large loose stools. Yesterday she was straining and finally passed a large white brown stool. She's been looking a little pale and tired but not acting sick accept for the stools. It seems like she has hardly eaten anything for the whole 5 weeks. My question is how can I help her feel better? Can I let them out with the rest of the flock or should I keep the others closed up and let them out to free range for awhile. I am thinking that some greens and bugs would make my hen feel better. Anyone in Southern Maryland interested in some runner ducks?
