    Hello, I've recently noticed my mallard duckling male has what looks to be a swollen crop. I am not entirely sure though, and I wanted to get an extra pair of eyes on the situation. If it is, what can I do to help? It's been this way for a few days. It's hard to get a good picture with him, he's a bit skittish.

  2. Does it only eat dry feed?....Has it got food out at all times?..Have you given it anything other than feed?...They need grit to help grind down food in their crop....
