So I have a coop full of chickens but there are 3of them that fly out of the coop and hang out in the yard roaming free with the ducks.
My question is that I am thinking I can grab the ducklings after a few hrs after they have hatched and bring them in under a heat lamp so for one they will be ppl friendly and two bc of all the others free ranging around the yard they would not be safe staying outside?
And when I take the ducklings inside (but I will still bring them out to play during the day) will the momma duck go into some type of depression bc I've taken her babies away? I'd figure they would survive if they were brought inside the first couple weeks but I do not want to cause any stress to the brooding duck.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance smile.png 🐣🐣🐣
Also I was thinking after a few weeks not sure how long but I would put up chicken wire or something to let the babies to start hanging outside all day then progressing to staying outside day and night
I need a lil advice folks smile.png take care
