Duckling Care & Brooder Ideas

            The Duckling BROODER   Ducklings need a warm and draft free brooder box. A Rubbermaid tub makes an easily cleanable brooder. Provide a 1/2 sq. ft. per duckling during the first week, then increased by 1/2 square foot every week or so because ducklings grow rapidly. Place a brooder heat Lamp above a corner of the brooder so that the ducklings can get away from the heat and return to it as necessary. In this corner a temp of 95°F should be maintained on floor level for the first week, after the first week begin to decrease the heat by 5° each week... read more

Tadpole's Growing Flock

On spring break of 2010, I begged my mom to let us go up to grandma and grandpa's. They live near a place called Rural King, which is a farming store. Grandpa wanted to go get some tomato seeds for his garden that year, so we went along. Turns out they were having CHICK DAYS! and thats how the obsession began.. We were city folk back then, but we were searching for a farm which we were signing on a week or so later. I wanted to bring a few chicks home and raise them, but we were 4 hours away from home and there was no way I was allowed to put those in our car. But my... read more
