    Hey guys and gals!

    My SA nibbler drake isnt right.

    He recently quit eating. Saturday night 5 days ago

    2 things i changed was i baught the same duck layena feed 25kg except this time i baught 5kg of meal worms and 5kg cracked corn (its -11 here at night)
    And while i was there i baught a bale of hay to throw over the icey ground for them

    so i threw the hay in and they all loved it

    Fed the mix feed they loved it except the SA nibbler... Now he hasnt eating in 5 days!

    I checkwd his crop and everything the odd day he hasnt eaten

    Hes inside right now he got a helping of birb vitamins a warm bath and basicaly force fed 2 handfulls of his favorite treat fresh corn nibblets. He pooped watery green chunks and seams low energy

    Ooh and he ate 2 sugar cubes.

    @casportpony can you check out this poo for me?

    I wonder could the corn have been moldy?

    Jpat I am sorry to hear about Nibbler. I hope @casportpony will be here to look at the poop pics. I'd say something is def going on with him. He has the KC for company that's so sweet. Has he been anywhere where he could have picked up a piece of metal or eaten anything else that could have set this off?
