Babies hatching , need urgent advice please - Page 2

Here's pictures of my 3babies when we got them. They are a yr old just like the Pekins. So much excitement around here these days. For some reason I could not send one picture so I just snapshot all their pictures. Hopefully you can zoom in and see how awesome looking these young lads and babe are

So how long should the babies be put up in an enclosed area with the mom?

What do I need to get for him to eat/drink. Sorry for all the ?s. Some kind of mineral water/vitamin water? Is there special feed for the babies? They are not supposed to eat regular feed that I give the older ones correct?and not until when do they go on regular feed? Again sorry for all the ?s. He's another knothead, I'm stoked! She has 3more eggs she is laying on hopefully will have one very soon

Either chick starter feed or Ducking feed or an All flock. Since your not having a big hatch I wouldn't go and buy a 50lb bag of starter but buy something the whole flock can eat like Purina Flock raiser crumble and plain water or plain water with some poultry vits added. 

 

That is one precious duckling Congrats!! Look forward to seeing more pics. It's usually 24 hrs after hatch before they are hungry and thirsty just place food and water close by mom and ducklings because she isn't going to get up to show him/her where the feed is as long as she is still sitting on eggs.
