Hi All, I started my flock in June with 3 adult (1-2 yrs old, already laying) female runner mixes off Craiglists, two young white runners (one male and one female -who just started laying in Nov) also picked up from CL. Everything has been great. Everyone was eating flock raiser crumbles from TSC, girls have free access to oyster shells, everyone was laying great! It was gangbuster egg laying before I left for 10 days over thanksgiving. The ducks spend the night in a box stall with food and water. Spend most the daylight hours in a fenced yard while we are home. Husband works from home and I am home as well. I got a pair of Sebby geese (adult, bonded pair) in Oct. They have their own stall at night, but co-mingle in the yard during the day. I noticed the male goose doesn't eat very well, he is always standing guard, shooing away the ducks from the female goose. I got scratch grains per his previous owners advice. I started feeding a head of romaine or other greens at night in their stall. I was away for the 10 days and just got back to find the youngest female runner, who just started laying looking very thin and dropping her thawed green peas. We caught her up yesterday and found out how thin. I also caught up another thin looking runner, but not nearly as bad as the youngest white runner. Her keel is very pronounced, boney around her eyes. Her vent was distended, red. I brought her to the local avian vet. We gave fluids and tried to work a rubbery egg out. After a few tries and not getting it, but with her perking up, I headed home. When I got home, she had laid the rubbery egg. I have her in an extra bathroom with an open kennel, towels and tons of food options. Today i swam her in warm baths for approx 30 mins multiple times. She will only eat freeze dried meal worms and some lettuce. She is drinking when in the tub. I have water, green peas, oyster shells, leafy greens, flock raiser, scratch grains and broken up eggs shells offered. She did eat one crushed up egg shell yesterday night. But today I could only get her to willing to eat meal worms. She is very aggressive with her meal worm eating. She sits in her kennel most of the time, but will be active if encouraged. What else can I do? What can I do about the male goose refusing to eat. I'm concerned that there is something I am doing wrong for the whole flock and the youngest, newest layer is showing it the worst. Doc did not think checking her calcium levels would help. She did not give her an inj of calcium. she did not take an xray. But I do not feel another egg today. Her face seems brighter, but I need her to eat more than meal worms. I could tube feed her, as I am a retired vet tech and done it with other birds. I was thinking just crushed up food, water, maybe some vitamins. Any help with what the issues might be, and how to fix them would be great.
