Hi guys! So I'm incredibly new to raising ducks and my pair of five and half month old Rouens are throwing me for a loop. The hen, Khloe, has been acting unusual (to me) lately. She used to want to come out of her little "house" and run around and quack insanely loud. But now she's become more of a recluse and isn't eating as much as she used to and is even sleeping way more. The drake, Froderick has taken the position in the "house" standing and laying ahead of her as if he's protecting her. He isn't eating as much either, but is still his same self. Both drink water as usual thank goodness. From the information I could find Khloe seems to be getting ready for egg laying, but it just seems to be taking such a toll on her. And after all the egg-laying horror stories I've read I'm deeply worried. Is this normal pre-laying behavior for ducks? I'm really blank when it comes to ducks. They're our first and where I'm from nobody seems to know anything about them.
