    Raising Wood Ducks

    Hi! I put the woodies in with the tiniest of Mallards. I watch like a hawk for aggression. I grind up my duck starter into micro crumble and powder. And they love it that way (for me) and put regular crumble in a shallow reptile dish with water for them to sift around in. I get all of my birds (...

    3 Week Old Chick Help

    Use a heat lamp still. If they get to hot they will move away from it to a better spot. They will have the option to use it or not. That is pretty cold for outside temps. Until they are "completely" feathered out you should have one. As long as the stall is fully secure from top to bottom you...

    chicks pecking other chicks

    Oh, I forgot to add....don't let the vicks vapor rub get into their eyes. They will possibly have vision damage if not go blind. Camphor is NOT good for eyes or mucus membranes. So if/when you use it, use it sparingly.

    chicks pecking other chicks

    Once the chicks start picking....they will pick! They pick all red or bloody spots......Check threads on here with a search for cannibalism. That's why some people use red lights, until they heal up. Also, that's why the big company's debeak chicks. (Something I can't stand!) The chicks that are...
