Re: Ducks Still laying

Yes the soft shells are a worry and could indicate an underlying infection. I have had so many problems with my white and KC girls, it breaks my heart. I have found that the rare breeds are best for only laying seasonally, my Buff Orpington’s never have issues and they are ten years old now... altho...

Re: Doddery Duckling

I must have fallen for that sale tactic before as I seem to have 6 domestic drakes of my own, all of whom have to be separated for 6 months of the year. I am an expert drake juggler!

Re: Doddery Duckling

Hi! Firstly... I WANT HIM!!! What a cute little duckling! Seems they have a wonderful life with you. What breed is he? It could well be that he just has developmental issues which could be related to a number of things. The extra vitamins will certainly help him, brewers yeast on his food will also ...
