Just a little update. The weather is finally nice enough to get them outside for more than 10 minutes at a time.
They are nearly full feathered now. Just a little baby fluff remains on their heads. Man do they love their little pond. They dive under and just float around like I'd imagine ducks would do.
They are getting big too. I think they are just about nearing full size. I'd say maybe another pound or two and they'll be full grown.
I have a little bit of the starter left, about enough for a week. Is it alright to start them on normal food once the starter/grower runs out?
And once I switch them, do I still need to provide them with the food 24/7? I've been making sure they are never out of food or water since I got them.
From what I can tell, a couple of them seem to be starting to make sounds similar to quacks. So I'd assume those are females. It's hard to tell still but I only see one that looks like it has a definitive drake feather. But I'm not sure how old they need to be to get that.
