    I want to thank everyone on this board that contributes their knowledge to help those of us that are just getting started. I have 2 ducks that were having problems. My female roeun wasn't growing, was having a hard time standing upright and it's feathers weren't coming in right. My Khaki just stopped walking. Thanks to now understanding the niacin requirement for ducks they are both on the mend.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!![​IMG]

    The last time I tried my hand at ducks I hadn't found this site and all of them died [​IMG]

    It is going much better this time.

    I too want to thank everybody on here! I went through a niacin deficient duckling when I received my order from Metzers....a few weeks on the supplement and she is 100%. Now I am going through it again, although this one might not recover quite as well as the other seeing how she is 8 weeks already and I just rescued/adopted her today :'( I won't give up on her

    I'm thankful too! I'm new to hatching ducks and everyone here has been so helpful. Nearly all of my questions have been answered by searching the forum, and the friendly posters here are quick to offer their insight to my remaining concerns. Plus, looking at all these cute pictures of ducklings has been great when I'm bored at work! [​IMG]

    I want to thank the board too. I just have Daisy but I have found out a lot of info here in the past few months. It's amazing that almost anything I type into Google about ducks is bound to bring up this site within the first couple of hits! The information here is great & so are the people!
