My question is, the breeder I got her from ( not sure what I'm naming him/her yet) said she was Approximately a mo an a half old, I'm not sure exactly. I do have some experience with handfeeding, but not a Quaker. She's pecking, but she still needs handfed. How often would you feed her?
Yes, we have access to an avian vet and Yes, I will take her, no hesitation, at the first signs of a problem. But, its the weekend, I'd like to hold off and make an appointment on Monday if possible.

Sorry it's taken so long to get back, my little guy keeps me so busy! Of course I'm unsure of the sex so... I originally named him Ozzie but, this bird Quacks! So, it quickly became Duckie. I'd love to post pics but I'm unsure how, so far. I have them on my fb. Cnyguy, thanks for the link! I'm really excited to find a forum devoted to my new obsession!
I call Happy "my little duck," because of the constant quacking! She does it when she flies, and if she's mad at one of her feathers.

Peppy does the quack, too. Plus, when he talks he sounds like Donald Duck. Really cute. He does a chicken bok, bok, booooook, too, but he gets progressively louder and it's kind of hard to get him to stop once he gets started, so we try not to do that one too often.
