A few days ago, I made a topic about how my one Pekin girl, Biscuit, was acting strange. She kept to herself, was sitting down constantly, and wasn't as chipper as she always was. We found the cause. Last night before they were put to bed, we found her sitting in the pet carrier used for our call ducks. Back behind her was a DSi (A handheld gaming system) stylus, roughly the size of a 4 inch nail, covered in her crap. It didn't take long to see what she had eaten to cause her distress. We thought that since it was out now, she would be fine. We were mistaken. This morning, she did come out with the rest of the flock when it was time, but she still kept to herself. I thought maybe she was still feeling a bit ill, so I let her go for the time being. I fell asleep this morning, until this afternoon...and when I came out to check on them, she was dead in her favorite spot, in the basement window well. I know I'm new to BYC Forums, but I just thought I'd pass this on. Rest in peace, Biscuit. We will forever miss you. (P.S. We don't have a vet within 50 miles that can look at poultry, or ducks, for that matter. I've looked and asked around, but have yet to find anyone. If by some odd chance anyone knows of a vet that can look at ducks that is near the Goshen, IN area, please let me know).
