Anyone know about ducks?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was thinking about buying baby ducks but I have no clue about them!! I have several chickens of all ages right now and I was wondering if I could raise them together? But I have no clue about the environment and food? Can anyone give me the basics of raising baby ducks?

Hi,

 

There are a lot of duck fans on BYC. Here's a link to the duck forum:

http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

I'm sure you can get a lot of information from them on any questions you have.

 

Also, there are some basics in keeping ducks covered in the Learning Center:

Good luck to you!

The two can be raised together but ducklings are notoriously messy. They also have a tendency to make their bedding wet which isn't good for baby chicks.
