Anecdotal Behavioral Observations


  • My “flock” consists of ONLY 2 FEMALES (1 Cayuga and 1 Saxony).
  • The Saxony Duck developed an inexplicable etiology (unknown reason) of a slipped tendon in her left leg at 2 months old.
    • She cannot use her left leg to walk.
    • She was taken to the vet for diagnosis and treatment.
    • Although her diagnosis was sad (she was previously a healthy duckling), she is a happy duck.
    • She has learned to live by hopping around on one leg.
    • She has to be helped into and out of her pool.
    • This condition may or may not have affected the personality of each duck.
