    So I just wanted to share a little duck story of inspiration. So we ordered 2 white crested ducklings and when they arrived we noticed some thing was wrong with one of them. She was tiny and walked in circles and her crest was growing on the side of her head covering one eye. so I posted questions on here and we thought she had wry neck but soon realized she was blind in one eye and we were devastated. People on her said give her brewers yeast and vitamin drop so that's what we did and she began to grow and feather. So we decided it was time to introduce her and her sister to our bigger ducks thanks to some great advice we got on here it went well. At first it was kinda sad because she would just lay up in the duck house alone with her sister all ways coming back to check on her. So we started calling around with thought it be best to put her to sleep then we got the idea to shave her crest so she could better see and that's when it happened to began to gain confidence coming little by little out of her house and now she is part of the flock fallowing the other ducks around and doing what the other ducks do and it is truly amazing to watch. I am a duck owner of some truly awesome ducks
