    We have 3 pekin girls, 2 have orange beaks and one has a pink beak, is this normal?

    Here's the little girl with the pink beak

    And here is the little girl with the "wry neck" atleast that's what I'm thinking it is. They are a week old now and we have been putting a vitamin/electrolyte supplement in their water and she doesn't really seem to be improving, maybe it will in time. She eats and drinks fine. We have to watch her when they get "swim time" because she gets so excited she will flip over and go under


    Go figure both the ones I'm questioning are our Jumbo Pekins lol The "regular" pekin is fine, other then being small. She was the littlest one in the shipment but oh so cute

    I have two baby Pekins.
    One has a yellow bill and one is pink.
    From what I've read on here and other sites, it's perfectly normal.
    Cute babies! I love how your boxer is so gentle with them!

    Here's my babies. Tweety and Taz.

    Give poly vi sol diluted in water directly to the wry neck duckling for 1-2 weeks or until it recovers. I mix 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp sugar and 1-2 drops poly vi sol (withOUT iron). Give her/him a few drops at a time offered 3-4 times a day until better.
