    I thought you might but I've just been able to confirm our ID's by the feather. I couldn't always tell who was rasping and who was quacking, [​IMG]

    Does anyonr have any links to the deep litter method? I'm starting to think about their coop and what will be best. I'm not sure if there is a search method for this site as I only use a cell phone.

    Also, here are the duckies at 2 weeks![​IMG]

    I will be adding another female Pekin, 3 yrs old, to my Pekin trio, two females and one male. Mine are less then 1/2 year old.

    This duck is a rehome that lost her partner several months ago.

    We have a very large yard and lawn that the ducks run around on. In it we also have two Mallard type ducks, 1 male and 1 female.

    The Pekins stick together and the Mallard type ducks stick together.

    What is the best way to help integrate the new rehome Pekin female with the rest of the Pekins already at my house?

    i have three pekin ducks I used to have four but one past away I have two females and one male. I do have a question every morning I would find one to three eggs from my little girls for the longest time but now they have all the sudden stopped laying eggs is this normal
    they get their feed in the morning (scratch, crumple, grit ) and their vegies ( lettuce chopped, peas, corn ) and they have fresh water every morning I will change it whether it needs it or not and they have a little baby pool for now until the bigger one is built so am I doing something wrong cause they were raised with chickens and when I try to separate them from the chickens they get very upset and depressed until I put them back together with them please any help you can give me will be very much appreciated
    thanks

    Could they be hiding the eggs?
