For the last week of January 2019 i ordered 15 ducklings from two different hatcheries:
Metzer Farms shipped the ducklings on Monday, January 28th, Ideal Poultry on Wednesday the 30th.
- Five White Layer Hybrid ducklings from Metzer Farms
- Five Buff Orpington ducklings from Ideal Poultry
- Five Magpie ducklings from Ideal-Poultry
This article will describe the whole story from setting up the brooder, receiving the ducklings, raising them until they are ready to live in a temporary house outside and meet their future flock until they are grown-ups and can roam freely.
More pictures related to this thread are collected in the »2019 Spring Ducklings« album and there is a discussion thread in the forum.
