    My pekin duck is eating much less and is much less active. Should I be worried?

    G’Day from down under Pekins4Life [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I have no experience with ducks. As you mention, you may have more luck getting answers to your question on either the Emergency & Diseases forum:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    Or the Duck Forum:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    I always refer duck specific questions to the "duck thread," put that in the search box and it will come up.
