    I have a 1 year old Rouen hen that is lathargic, unkept, and not eating. Is there an antibiotic for ducks? Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Could she be egg bound?

    I don't know, her sister died while I was out of state during the week. Looks like the back of her head has some scratches, like when the male holds her to mate. These are my irst pets and I am not up to peed on fowl illnesses

    If you have an aggressive drake, he needs to be immediately separated from her. She may be injured because of him.

    How many ducks do you have?
