In May of 2018 I took a trip to Rural King with my family. Little did I know this trip would bring so much joy to my life. Every time I go here I always find myself at the brooders full of baby chicks. This time, the little peeps sounded different. Upon looking in I found the cutest little mallard ducklings and I knew I had to get some. I decided to get two.
I have never had ducklings before, never planned on getting ducklings, and had no idea what I was doing. Though, we recently got chickens for the first time and I planned on putting these ducklings in with our chickens. Well..that didn’t work out. Our duckings and chickens didn’t get along so I quickly had to put together a coop. At 6 weeks old, I knew I had to get them out of my bedroom and into an outdoor coop, so I bought a small outdoor coop as their temporary home.
