Well....7-8 weeks seemed so far off, but today is the day we bring the recently hatched, 6 or 7 silver appleyards home! Here is our brooder set-up. Do we look ready? To be honest we are the most nervous about providing them water in a way that is both not too messy and makes it easy for them to drink/clean their nostrils. For feed, we are using Dumor 19% chicken starter crumble (non-medicated). We also have Dumor Chicken Grit (insoluble/crushed granite), as we plan to offer greens in their water. Any last minute recommendations would be greatly appreciated--we'll be picking up the ducklings this evening (any tips or tricks for transporting them home?) !
