    Hey guys,

    My ducks are a year old now and it's their first breeding season.

    I havn't wormed them yet.. Is it important to do so?

    Does anyone not worm their ducks and had no problems?

    Its important to de-worm ducks when they have worms other wise don't, it's not necessary. My ducks have never had worms so I don't worm them.

    Haven't had to worm ours - they are five years old. I do get fecal tests done once a year before they start laying, just to check. Reminds me. We are due….
