To make a long story short, we have 6 ducklings all because someone bought one for an Easter gift (not me!). We have a pond and two natural streams here so we inherited 2 ducklings and then I bought 4 more. We have a Blue Swedish, Pekin and 4 Mallards. All of the ducks are females. They are all feathering nicely though I am not sure exactly how old they are. My main question has to do with feeding them. I bought a bag of whatever it was the feed store told me to get. I will have to check what it is tomorrow. What do you feed your ducks? And how much and how? Do you use a bowl or put it on the ground? And what do you use for water? I have built a house for them that is 4 by 4 feet. The floor is vinyl and the back folds open for easy cleaning. When I get the roof on I will post pictures so you can laugh - and trust me you will be laughing. Another question is what should I keep on hand for owning ducks? I have no time right now to go out and buy or borrow a book on ducks, let alone read one. I am trying to keep up with a household of animals and children and the end of the school year. I may not survive long enough to see these ducks into adulthood! I will honestly appreciate any help you can send my way. I have been reading a lot here when I get the chance but feel a bit overwhelmed.
