    Hey y'all, can anyone tell me if this is normal? I noticed one of my girls has black spots on her bill. This is the first time I've noticed it. [​IMG]

    Appears within the normal range to me. The bill is not real soft or otherwise strange looking?

    Those appear all the time on egg-laying females. She should be fine. :3 It's kinda like the "mask of pregnancy"...but with ducks.

    Thank you for the answers :) It had me worried there for a minute, especially since I just lost a whole flock of chickens to some unknown (waiting for necropsy redults) disease. I just wanted to make sure that my ducks weren't getting sick too :)
