Hi everyone. I'm so happy to announce that my Welsummer chicken just hatched 3 of my Welsh Harlequin duck eggs. The ducks are not very good sitters, but the chickens are. So we slipped some fertilized eggs under one of our chickens when she went broody, and now we have 3 baby ducklings.
Do i need to separate the babys to a heat lamp area like when I raised the ducks and chickens until they are all feathered out and old enough to be out in the real world?
Thanks for any advice.
