Yes I do have ducks! Poor thing! Is he physically ok? Yicks! We definitely don't need rabies on our premises that we do feel for him! We're in Tooele. Are you wanting to get more ducks for your flock or wanting to move him to a safer location?
He's kind of scrawny and pretty lonely. I know he went through a period of depression and would hardly eat anything, and I had to bring him inside during winter and give him a bath and food and put some neosporin on a big chest wound he had. Dirty raccoons, grrr! I don't know how clean he is, and I certainly don't want him to make your ducks sick I just hate seeing him so lonely. I won't get ducks again until we are in Delta. I'm sick to death of losing animals here. We are cursed or something. If you would rather not take him, it's okay. I hadn't even thought about the whole germ thing. Duh me.
Now, had my friend bring me duck eggs because mama disappeared. There were eggs strewn all over the lawn. They are thinking Racoon again. One of the eggs was clearly not started. The other two had veining..but, no movement. They had been out a full day. Said I would warm them up and see later if they are viable. They were. Now I am trying to remember how to hatch duck eggs. :/ Wish I could keep them if they make it.
Will load some photos..when BYC let's me. Having troubles on this site again. Maybe it's just my computer. Anyway, the photos are from a few days ago..not sure how far along they are. The friend said he thought she had sat on them for around a week.
I seem to recall they need more humidity than chicken eggs, but I don't remember how much. Maybe someone in the duck section can help?
