    Hello all.

    I just adopted two baby ducks (Jack and Sally)

    I live in Florida and Im trying to find the best housing for them. I have been scouring through this forum trying to find the best options for them.

    I also am not sure about taking them to the vet... etc.. Do you take ducks to the normal vet or should you take them to an aviary vet?

    Most vets won't see ducks or chickens, so you might want to call around.

    We have a farm vet close to us.. So I was going to call and ask them. I jsut want to make sure to do all I can to prevent parasites since I have a mollucan cockatoo as well. I dont want to transfer anything between them if thats even possible
