So I have been researching chickens for about a year now. We had wanted ducks as well but everyone talked us out of them saying they were way too messy. We went to pick out our chickens last night at the Tactor Supply Co and my husband fell in love with the ducks. So we bought 3 ducks and 7 chicks. I am a stay at home mom with one daughter and we love animals and have the time and patience to dedicate to them all. Right now they are in a large oval metal horse feed/water thing. There is a heat lamp and a large water device for chickens( but we were told it is also okay for ducks) and a feed device with little circles to eat out of. We bought organic chicken starter and were told that's also okay for ducks. Last night everyone was getting along and today as well. They all huddle together and then roam as well. My husband will be building the coop and run shortly but I would like to keep them inside for at least 10 weeks. Is there any advice or tips you can give me? I would like to offer them fresh greens( spinach or endives) but don't know when it's an appropriate age to do so. Also do you recommend handling them several times a day to form a bond so they are more comfortable with people( chickens & ducks)? Thank you very much!
