    She's just trying to bathe in her little water bowl there. That just means she wants to take a bath. All the actions she's doing there is as if she were in a pool. ;) I've had ducklings do that next to their water bowls many times.

    But ducks are very tolerant creatures, they can handle a LOT of pain and not even show it. They can be running around one day the next day dead. Some won't give ANY signs that they are even sick until it's to late. They are Tough LITTLE buggers.

    Yeah, tough indeed. I opted not to medicate my guy. Pain stops us from using things that need to heal. He's up and moving around this morning so I think I choose well.

    I don't medicate any of my ducks either, chickens yes because they are a different story, they aren't as Tough but ducks are usually very strong buggers.
