Hello, I have a Pekin male that will be 13 years old in March. Other than arthritis and a few stints with bumble foot over the years, he seems very healthy. He lives in the house for the winter now that he is older. Does anyone out there have experience with older ducks or does anyone know of one personally living that long or longer than that? Does anyone have any experience with older duck conditions or issues? He is the best and most wonderful friend I have ever had. I also wanted to add he doesn't keep himself as clean (vent area) as he used to and I wondered if that was normal for older ducks. Thanks in advance!
