hello. i'm new here and new to raising ducks.. i have a few questions..thought maybe you could help me out? 1. a non freezing waterer. i need an honest opinion on what's best? i know what the stores have arent always the best option, but if it comes down to getting one of those, they offer a plastic waterer that fills from the bottom..all one piece. or a galvanized steel heated base with a separate waterer. any experience with either or experience with something better is welcomed!! 2. feet problems. i have a pekin that developed bumblefoot on one of her "toes". i took her to the vet, they gave her an antibiotic, said to give salt water soaks and compresses to try and open it up. the vet was reluctant to cut it open..i guess fearing another infection. the bump got slightly smaller..she stopped limping. but it's still there. do i go back and insist on them lancing it? is it full of infection still? 3. do all of you handle your ducks on a regular basis? my ducks are pretty friendly..if i sit on the ground theyll sit next to me..up against me..etc..but for the most part don't like to be handled. they like to stay on the ground. almost makes me feel like a bad duck owner..even though i dont think i am..i dont force the issue..but it made the trip to the vet awkward. thanks for your time..thats all for now..
