      Hi Again Amiga. They are avid hunters throughout the day however. Which also makes it hard to force feed any supplements, medicines, wormers, etc. I feed their wheat and water foul feed in water so can add extra calcium to that. Is that just the human grade calcium?

      Hi Amiga Although they have access to all the wheat, water foul feed, dry layer pellets,and oyster shells they could want they dont eat much of any of it. They eat the wormies and peas as though they were starving but only pick at the rest of it with long bills. For the 4 ducks they share a cup of peas in the morning and a cup of wormies at night in hopes that theyll be hungry enough to eat the grains.

      Hi Amiga, Thanks for responding to my plea for help. My girls haven't been broody since June and haven't gained any weight back. They do get peas every morning and wormies every night which they love but I have been unsuccessful in finding ANY other treat that they will eat

      Hello Amiga,
      The female ducks get along great and I let them both free range while the drake remains inside his larger coop. The drake just won't lose interest in her. If they are even within ten metres of each other she freezes up, when he gets close to her she panics and makes A LOT of noise. IF ANYONE HAS ADIVE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO POST.

      Hello Amiga,
      I need urgent help because I cannot introduce a young female duck into the small group I have of ducks (drake and duck) without my drake chasing her and over mating her. If anyone has any ideas don't be afraid to post PLEASE HELP!!!!!

      Amiga....I have a question for you...and you are certainly very knowledgeable about ducks....if I make an alfafa soup by soaking some pellets in water would the ducklings need chick grit to go with it?....I have 7 khakis and 5 rouens just looking for something to supplement the crumbles....they are growing rapidly....eating 3+ cups a day....thanks a lot...you always have such good info.
