There actually is one up for sale on Ebay.
We have cold here too, built a good size brooder (3' X 5') raised and enclosed for the garage. two heat lamps mounted outside and shining through some hardware cloth, and a 100 watt bulb mounted on top inside. works for raising 6-8 chicks to 8 weeks at an average overnight temp of zero. then i move them to the coop, segregated by some hardware cloth for two or three weeks and they do just fine. brooder is closed on three sides, hardware cloth on front and top, cut and fitted some styro insulation to fit over the hardware cloth if needed, but usually full open after week two.
Yep, and wow. They don't come cheap.
Nope and this is some of the better prices of the year because not everyone wants to winter hatch. It also takes 52 days to hatch them.
I couldn't get to sleep last night. I realized I'd be setting duck eggs soon, and I got all excited.
I'm torn about the number though. I have older eggs in the fridge I plan on throwing in (It's worth a shot!) but that will effect my hatch rate.
Oh well. I'm trying it.
I have loved Wood Ducks since I was little! They are so pretty! You'll have to post pictures somewhere so We can see the babies
