    I have two white pekin ducks. Had them for about 3 weeks now, and one of them has this raw looking bald spot on both sides of his neck and a spot on the tip of his beak (also looks raw) and I noticed his beak is crooked and he just looks sick. I don't know what's wrong or what to do. Someone please help! I'm new to all of this

    Can you please post some pics? Have you seen anything crawling beneath the feathers?

    Also notice the top and bottom of his beak are different colors. He does look ill. After posting in full detail and with photos if possible, at the ER thread. Please do the same on the "Duck thread." He may be showing symptoms of something that is common to ducks. Hoping he will have the best possible outcome. [​IMG]
