Sometimes there to quick.fast. They have no reasoning to think that the baby will drown. It's your job to make sure they don't drown. I had a brand new chicken only a few hrs old die in the water dish. I went to change the ducks over to the other coop but took 5 mins to put something away in my hands so I could grab the older ones. Or get hurt drake and other females around. Sometimes pets get injured in the process or sick. It's our job to protect or little ones.

I can't wait to pick up our ducklings when they come into the farm store on thu or fri.. then waiting for runner ducks to hatch on May 14th. I am a newbie to ducks so if you think there is a thread I 'must' read please tell me... I have tried to hit the threads on here but afraid I missed something important. I know about needing niacin and ordered some brewers yeast that should be here in time. Any other "must" know facts??

Just a little bit of flying when they got excited. If they could get six feet off the ground though I suppose it's totally possible that they could really fly and just never did.

Well that's good, I just hope they didn't get attacked wherever they flew to. And I don't think they could have gotten more than a few miles without tiring out. Are you planning on looking for them?

Sad day here.  Found one of my Pekin girls dead:hit this morning when I went to let everyone out of the night pen.  She was 3 years old.  No apparent cause of death.  She was just laid out belly down, head forward and feet out behind her:hit

Nothing is trivial.

Where will you spend eternity?
