I will be getting my first pair of ducklings at the end of this month and I want to make sure I know exactly what I am doing so I can take the best care of them.
I was wondering what bulb would be best for the brooder? There will only be 2 ducklings. I've read a normal 65w bulb can be okay for 2 ducklings, is that right?
Also I've bought some chick crumb which the shop told me would be fine for the ducklings. I can't find on the packet anywhere about the protein percentage. I know the food is unmediated so that's good. Do yoy think it will be okay or should I find something that gives me more info on the protein? Also how long would I feed the crumb for before moving on to the normal feed? And when can I give other bits like veg etc?
Sorry for the million and one questions. Thanks in advance for any help!
I am so so excited to get my ducklings but want to make sure I care for them right.
