Hello all! I'm new here, so I hope I set this up right. Anyway, I decided not too long ago that I wanted to raise two baby Pekin ducklings (male and female). I ordered the pair and they should be here Wednesday, January 11. I have my brooder prepared and I purchased all of the necessary feed and equipment, but I'm a bit overwhelmed with it all. There are a few questions I was hoping to get some answers to, any and all information will be deeply appreciated!: 1) Does the brooder need to be 95 degrees at the beginning? When do I need to drop this? 2) Will a non-medicated chick starter feed be sufficient for feeding or do I need to add any supplements or anything else? 3) When can I introduce my ducklings to swimming water? For how long at a time? 4) When can they start going outside for short periods of time? 5) I've heard of duck diapers.. Can I use them ASAP? Where's the best place to buy them? 6) I've heard that Pekins don't raise babies often, is this true? That's all of the questions I can think of right now, but if there's something you think I should know, please tell me! Again, I will appreciate all information given. Thank you!
