    My ducks don't seem to mind the snow anymore, but I do. When will winter end? =[

    One of my WH ducklings, Jeepers, has a clogged nare. I noticed it because she seemed a little snuffly during their daily swim. She was also whistling slightly when she breathed. They have access to water that they can dip their heads in at all times. She otherwise seems perfectly healthy and fine. Just wondering if it is cause for concern, and what might have caused it.

    Also, is it normal for ducklings to start to look like they're outgrowing their down? They're almost two weeks old and their down is starting to look thinner. Their tail feathers are coming in, and boy do they look funny lol. And omg they won't stop trying to eat my hoodie string as I type this. Rawr duckies! Lol =]

    Is it wrong that I want to go down to TSC and get a couple of babies to raise before my muscovy babies get here? They'd be all ready to go outside by the time the muscovies showed up.

    IT'S A SICKNESS OMG

    Put 1-2 Tbs Apple cider vinegar in a gallon of water. I did that when my duck was all stuffy. I think it was Miss Lydia who told me. Put it in water that's deep enough to put their beaks in. I cut a hole in a milk jug and put water and vinager in it, then also put another deep dish out with water and vinegar. By the second day the sniffles were all gone.

    So pretty!

    Apparently my ducks are quite upset at the moment. It's cold and rainy so we are not outside with them. They have been at the back door yelling at me all morning and won't touch the cabbage I hung up for them.
