OH MAN, I did it again......

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Last year I hatched out 4 baby ducks and swore I would not get anymore because Ducks are sooo messy.  Well I lied, I lied to my family, myself and the entire world, I bought two baby ducks today and tomorrow I plan on stopping in at Tractor Supply to get two more.  Is this an addiction?  If so, Is there a cure??? I thought cigarrettes were bad.  HA HA HADuck 1.jpg

Could be worse, I have 22 in the incubator. Down to two babies left from the other batch, they're PO'd this morning still with the separation from the others who went home yesterday. These two don't leave until the 22nd, when the big batch is due!

 

As soon as I candled and saw how many were going, I immediately second guessed my decision while cleaning the brooder with only 6 babies in it. LOL

 

Started having flash backs to when I brooded 10. gig.gif

 

Got a call last night requesting older ducks... they can't stand brooding! Some days a brooding service fee feels like it should be... invaluable. There's a women locally that fetches $16 each to get them to 3 weeks old. A bargain!! hahaha
