Well, we are now the proud owners of rescued ducks. We have 15 chickens and have wanted to do ducks but didnt want the mess and noise we have heard goes with them. Hubby's co-worker has chickens that she raises just for eggs and then they got these 2 ducks last Fall. She thinks that the chickens lack of laying lately is due to ducks and wanted to get rid of them. Found out they were Muscovey's, did our research and found they were perfect for us. No need for water/pond source, not loud, etc. etc. Ok, we will take them. Well, after going there to get them... glad we did. I feel like we saved them from a GROSS life. And if I knew she wouldnt go out and get more chickens..... I would have taken her chickens from her. They had food, water and ok living conditions but they live close together, artificial light only, etc. Image these ducks when they got here yesterday and had fresh air, sunshine, food and treats..... So far, they are Yin and Yang for the names. Our question is Yin seems to have something with her wings. I will enclose a pic. You can tuck them in neatly and she looks normal but as soon as she fluffs her wings.... these parts pop out. Hubby said it feels like skin/muscles are formed that way, hence the reason they keep popping back out. Any ideas? Will she live with it forever? It doesnt seem to affect her, just looks odd. Birth defect? Previous living conditions?
