Put a brick both in and on the out side of the kiddie pool.
week old pekin ducklings mothering my 2 day old fawn and white runners and rouens.. Cuteness overload
I gave mine a kiddie pool this summer and built them a fancy little step system with flat rocks. They never use the steps, they just slither in and out over the side. They don't seem to have any issue getting in and out without steps or a ramp
Haha why is that!!?
Luckiky we live in suburban Sydney, Australia where its still rains and our grass can grow
I agree they need a way to get in, especially larger ducks who just are not as agile. I love stock tanks, and run 3 here.. way more durable than kiddy pools.
LOL your so lucky! right now i don't recall anything that isn't cold, snow and ice.
Eeeh im freaking out!!
Stella starting laying probably a week back and her eggs were lovely shape and size I even made some delicious quiche. But Tuesday morning I noticed an egg in the pond it was soft, I thought because it was laid in water. That afternoon dad found another soft egg and this is a picture of all the eggs after that.
THEY'RE ALL SOFT !!! And they haven't hardened at all the only hard is her first egg which I have kept.
Has anyone ever had this issue before is it her diet? I don't understand if it is her diet why were the other eggs ok? The only thing that I would say has changed is I have introduced her to watermelon but not excessive amounts.
Any advice and help would be great also there aren't many pet stores around us with duck feed the one I bought from our local just says for adult ducks.. I give her and Stanley some of this and fruit and veg daily but they are always finding bugs in the yard, I also have a bowl of shell grit for them.
But once again any help much appreciated!!
Also it seems to look like the eggs are getting softer as she is laying newer ones
Thats worrisome, okay what is in the adult feed? is it layer ? if not and even if it is get her some oyster shell, you say shell grit is this oyster shell? also I'd get her some calcium gluconate or coral calcium give this to her on a daily basis, to keep your drake from getting extra calcium take a small piece of bread and put the liquid calcium on it and offer it to Stella only. That way she is getting the extra calcium she needs and Stanley won't be getting excess. If she is laying they are old enough to eat adult feed.
