When This morning, about 20 minutes ago. Where In the duck brooder. The duck brooder is inside my duck coop which is sealed pretty well. Details It died with its head straight up, on its back. I went to go see who it was (looks like Daffy the other Cayuga, I’m not sure) and it’s face was all scrunched up. Looks like it lost an eye. Since cayugas are black, I couldn’t see any blood. But I called my dad to come to my house to take care of it (he lives right by me) and he will take a look at it. Who might be the murderers snakes. Quakers (the grown up male) killed a snake yesterday. And I saw another one last night. That’s all I could think of. Could this be a botulism death? All of my ducks are pretty healthy it looks like to me and I cleaned out and put fresh hay in yesterday. Other ducklings? The adult male? It rained yesterday, could it be too cold for the little one?
