My Khaki Campbell has ducklings, now what...?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I am new to the site and looking for a little advice. Our beautiful Khaki Campbell just broke all the rules, went broody and has just hatched some ducklings.

We have had our ducks for 3 years and they are totally free range, we live on acarage with a dam, they do there own thing and we have never locked them up at night or had an issues losing any.

Now that we have ducklings I was looking for advice from anyone who may have a similar situation and wondering what you did once you had ducklings?

I am in 2 minds, do I let them be and see how they go or do I lock the mother and babies up? (She has never been locked up so not sure she will be happy with me).

Look forward to hearing what others have done.

I think you should keep them free range. Then at night bring you should bring them in that's what I did with my ducklings. Also don't bring them to a heated part of your home they'll get used to the warm temperture and won't be able to handle the cold. Hope this helps

I like the idea of keeping them free range too.

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (even though I've had a few), but definitely post on our Duck link that Yorkshire coop left with you and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
