    Lighting for duck houses? (not for egg purposes!)

    Hey all. Wondering if anyone has good suggestions for what kind of lights they use in their duck houses. Mine are small -- two 4x3 (I think) dog-house-style structures. The reason I want lighting is actually because I want them to feel comfortable going inside during the day if they want to...

    Protein treats for ducks?

    I have 6 runner ducks and 5 ISA brown hens, who I spoil very much with small amounts of fresh fruit and veg almost every day.

    Greetings from Oregon

    Hello, I guess introductions are in order first. I didn't set out to become a flock mother. It was thrust upon me by my own live-in parent. But seeing as I do the bulk of the bird care, it seems I need to seek out the advice of other parents of feathered creatures who are much more experienced...
