    I have 3 mallards. 10 weeks old. One developed a red bill and started to sound raspy. I sure don't want anything to happen to him. Any help would be great

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. If you post on the link to our duck section that Kelsie2290 has given you, our duck experts there will probably be able to answer your questions. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. I hope your duck is okay. Good luck.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] I agree, post in the Ducks section and ask the members there. If you can post a pic or video as well it help a LOT. Best of luck and fingers crossed the ducky will be o.k!
