I am so frustrated, well...overwhelmed is probably the better word. I read all these posts....I am working back through the past, I am on page 215 or something....so I have a bit of an overload of info, so right now I am feeling very......ARRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH right now!!! LOL
I am pretty sure this baby will be gone by morning. I am so sad!
What should I ALWAYS have on hand when I have babies in the brooder??
Some one on this forum should write a book!!!!! I would pay for it! Even if it was a MicroSoft Word document....I would totally pay for it. I DO have Storeys Guide, and I realllllly like it, it is amazing, but.....I dunno. It is more of an encyclopedia....I want a starters guide to having ducks.
Or have stickies about the most asked questions...ie: what are the best breeds, what to have on hand, what to do for ailments, the questions that are asked over and over and over.
I am sad. I really don't want to lose this baby, but I really think s/he is going to be gone by morning. Bugs me I don't have what I need on hand right now.
I had call ducklings this spring that appeared to have a niacin deficiency. I went to the local feed store and bought a 50 lb bag. I'm sorry your duck isn't doing well. I know I scrambled to try to find something with niacin in it to give my ducklings and just ended up getting the brewers yeast because I wasn't sure what else to use.
Well, s/he is still alive, so I am going to go get brewers yeast today and maybe some poultry vitamins if I can find them.
S/he doesn't look as bad as last night, but maybe he was just really tired....we took them outside and he would run to catch up with the others and then lay down, then run again, then lay down. Maybe just plum tuckered out!!!
