    I have many ducks so I’m not quite sure whose Pooh could be the issue but a few days ago I noticed some white splotches instead of my normal firm duck poop that’s typically all over the place. I did not quarantine my new ducks that I got on Saturday due to weather conditions. They seem to be the only ones doing this. But... only when they are walking out of the barn in the morning. They are caged at night and all of their Pooh is totally solid and appropriate colors. So. Should I pull them out and put them in another holding area for a few weeks? What about during the day? My vet does not see birds nor does fecal float. So where is an easy place to start. Or. Are they just fine!? :)

    Possibly from the change in feed. Not eating enough? A bit stressed?
    I'm sure they will be okay in a few days.

    I see watery poop from my Muscovy much more than the other ducks I think it maybe for mine because they camp out at their water buckets a lot. Seems to be pretty typical of my Muscovy.

    I would call that poop abnormal. Can you find a vet that can check the poop for coccidiosis, bacteria, yeast, and worm eggs?
