They are keeping their bills open?? Are they too hot??
We have been under a heat advisory the past few days.... My ducks have been doing the same thing.
I think it is like panting in a dog, the hotter they are the more the pant.
That is what I was thinking!
Mine do it too.
Yup - panting. Can you give them some cool water to sit in?
Going to clean their pool out now!
My ducks like it when I get the hose and put an attachment on it that makes the water into a mist.
It's known as gular flutter. Similar to, but not the same as panting. Done to disipate heat.
Quote:Yep, do this several times a day and along with their pool(and a shady place to lay in the dirt) and they'll do OK.
