Additional info. Can't confirm sex, but I am guessing male.

Cyprus was tested for parasites. Negative :) !

His wing and hips were also carefully examined. The vet also watched him walk. So far he seems to be just a healthy growing duck. Maybe growing a bit faster than his siblings but nothing to be worried about yet. The vet checked for fractures and there wasn't sign of any. So at the moment I am to promote exercise, keep feeding as I am and wait. In 2 months if he still has trouble with his wing or gait he will go in for a follow up.

Wonderful news!
I couldn't be happier for both of you!

I know. I am so proud, they are just the sweetest little trio. Jade and Lio are especially close and even preen each other's heads.

Everyone lives well together. They don't flock together, but they live amicably. The chickens feed is elevated so the duckies can't get it, which I think the ladies appreciate. However the hens are helping themselves to the duck food, but that isn't a big deal :) The ducks have their own little house on grade and the hens have their house with a ramp. I think it works well since the duckies aren't really encroaching on the hen's nest area.

My little babies are getting so big. They are starting to green up. I love them. Wonderful ducks for suburban setting. Very quiet and calm natured.. though I think at a very high risk of predation from stray dogs. They have Zero defensive ability.
